Open Day 5 May 2018 Only a few days to go

Open Day 5th May 2018: Only a few days to go

With just a couple of days to go until our open day, we’re getting plenty of interest. Thanks to our hard-working committee, members, social pages and the local newspaper we have received a lot of enquiries over the past few days so it looks like it will be popular.  Special thanks to John Veage and the people at the St George & Sutherland Shire Leader for the great article.

Remember gates open 9am to 3pm 

The day will include inspecting a working beehive with the use of our protective bee clothing. And we haven’t forgotten the kids with small clothing available for children to wear and a special kids corner with bee-themed activities.

The day will also feature informative talks on beekeeping, the life of a worker bee and native bees, honey tastings and sales provided by club members, books on beekeeping along with wax products.

We will also host a sausage sizzle with coffee, tea and cold drinks available. Raffles with prizes including a beekeeping course for beginners (value $299), honey, books and lots lots more.
