Wednesday 31 January   Tom Salter on Hive types & Swarm control

Many of you will know Tom Salter as a Honey Show judge whose expertise separates the good from the best according to National Honey Show rules.  On Wednesday Tom will be sharing his thoughts on the merits of the many different hive types available in the UK, useful for those of us starting our beekeeping and guaranteed to be the source of much discussion amongst more established beekeepers!

Of interest to all beekeepers, Tom will also be discussing swarm control to concentrate our minds before the inevitable event!

The meeting will be held at 7.30pm in the  Petersfield Community Centre ‘Exhibition Room’.
