Sadly, so very sadly, our first colony died over the winter. Bees are having a hard time at the moment, it's not uncommon to lose a hive. However, onwards and upwards. we're still hugely enthusiastic about what we're doing here, and so, clearly, is the group. We have our first meeting of 2012 planned for Sunday 29th April, up at the Norwich Farmshare site, when we'll be sorting out everything in preparation for a new swarm and making up frames.
We're always keen to welcome to new members - membership for 2012 is only £20 and for that you'll get an equal share in whatever honey our lovely bees produce, as well as the opportunity to get involved in making hives and looking after the bees themselves. Membership also makes a great gift!
You can find more information on our website at www.norwichcommunitybees.blogspot.com or you can mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'd love to hear from you!
