Within the presentation a lot of emphasis was on encouraging people to register on Beebase Website. I have already done this some time ago and can confirm that it is a very good resource for UK Beekeepers to use. Within the site there is a section for putting details about each hive inspection and can also easily be set up for various different apiaries. There is also a lot of information about the various problems Bees suffer from and what to do. There are lots of .pdf documents to download and print out to hand out to people to provide further info. All in all it's well worth registering if your either a Beekeeper or interested in becoming one.
After the presentation I went to see the secretary as some goodies that I had ordered as part of my associations bulk buy scheme had arrived:-
|Another varroa treatment. It's the same as the stuff I used in the winter time except already made into a liquid.|
|Hessian sacking. This is just a bundle of hessian. It's useful in the smoker and really helps get your smoking working properly.|
