Notices - November 1998

Swarm Collection

Please advise Mary-Ann Lindsay (478 3367) if you are interested in collecting swarms this season. Remember that the mild winter means that swarms may start earlier than usual this year. Swarms have started already, but are expected to rise to a peak in the Wellington area shortly - refer to article by Frank Lindsay on page 4.

Diseaseathon - Refer Page 3

A diseaseathon will be held this year on 14th November. Areas to be covered will be Akatarawa and Waikanae. Come along, learn something new, and have a really fun day. Phone Frank Lindsay, 478 3367, for details if you cannot attend the November meeting.

Historical Items

The Wellington Beekeepers Association is over 50 years old. It would be really great to get some material or stories from the early days of the club to post onto our web site. If you have, or know anyone with any suitable materials or stories to tell, please contact James Scott (565 0164) or ( to organise for the loan or recording of the information.
