It remains at the Headstone Manor Museum but will be only one day, the August Bank Holiday Monday. The produce and honey shows will be run by Harrow in Leaf and HBKA, but the entertainment and other stalls will be run by Harrow Council.

Gardening Songs?

Beekeepng is often shared with gardening and allotmenting. But how many are aware that Harrow has a seed company? And they have events at the seed warehouse? On the 19th March Jo Stephenson and Dan Woods are performing comic songs about gardening at Franchi "Seeds of Italy".


Ordering Beekeeping Equipment

The HBKA Trading Officer keeps a stock of basic equipment available for members to buy. In 2015, every Sunday morning apart from the 3rd Sunday in the month equipment can be bought or collected from the apiary. It helps Brian if members could print the current equipment form and fill it in beforehand.
