Trunch Beekeeping Group

a.-Glebe-1.1-hiveTrunch Beekeeping Group is keen to increase the membership. Villagers interested in this fascinating and educational pastime are welcome to join. Looking out for the wellbeing of honey bees is a remarkably rewarding experience. During 2016 we will be organising presentations, apiary visits and tuition events.

The Group have now five hives after the successful merging of two pairs. Bearing in mind the Group was only formed last April by inexperienced aspiring bee keepers the achievement of setting up the hives has been relatively successful. Members attended various courses organised by experienced and well known bee keepers. The Group attracted interest from other local bee keepers whose help is invaluable.

The purchase of at least three more hives by the members is planned for this year. New types of hive are being introduced to the bee keeping market and it planned to try a couple of these.

A very extensive web site, with a Members Area, has been set up by three of the members; this is www.trunchbeekeeping.co.uk.
