Field Day in Lower Hutt - All Welocme

Sunday Dec.18 at 11am.

Location 215 Normandale Rd.

We have 5 hives here all in various stages.  We'll open each hive in turn and look thru them, discuss where each one is up to, and decide on the next best thing for each. Should be a great session for newbies as well as to those with abit more experience.

I know its very close to Xmas so many may not be able to make it, but I'm interested in getting something happening with the interest groups in Lower Hutt so thought this could be a good way to start.

Please let me know if you planning to come so we can estimate numbers.

Call or text Rodger Campbell 027-273-9746

There is limited parking so knowing who's coming will help me find parks if needed  :-)

There will be tea & coffee provided afterwards.

Hi Rodger. Thank you for you time today. I learnt a lot. It was very informative. I also enjoyed the company  of other newbe,s . Thanks also to our host  for the coffee and biscuits John Mitchell.


Many thanks

Many thanks to all those who came.  It was a great day, the weather held off nicely (I was abit worried there for abit), we could hear wind in the trees but the sun shone most of the time. I think everyone learned something and we all went away with more enthusiasm for our little bee friends.

Many thanks especially to Richard Braczek for sharing his experience and guiding us thru opening the hives, finding queens, deciding what's best to do next, and all that buzzy fun.

Hopefully we'll be able to do something similar in a few months time, keep an eye on this forum.
