Norwich Community Bees - getting ready for 2012

Norwich Community Bees continues to go from strength to strength; we had our first meeting of 2012 at the beginning of February, and we’ve got plenty of plans for the year ahead.

We have one hive, up at the Norwich Farmshare site in Postwick, and we’ll have our first group hive visit towards the end of March (exact date depends on the weather). The group is also keen to build up the numbers, and we're planning to build a Top Bar Hive (or two) before the swarming season in April.

Food for our bees is very much on our minds; at the last meeting we talked about the work the Bungay Community Beekeepers are doing to provide bee corridors of wild flowers and wondered if we could do something similar.

Membership of Norwich Community Bees is just £20 for 2012 – if you would like to join, or simply find out more, drop us a note at norwichcommunitybees@hotmail.co.uk or visit the website at www.norwichcommunitybees.blogspot.com.
