Wax Workshop January 2015

Two local bloggers wrote about their day in Harrow, Emily from Ealing (thanks for the photo) and Helen from Epsom. Pleasure to see them and make links with other beeks in the area, check out their blogs for wax working and other local bee activity.

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.

Doreen and Judy win Display Class at National


Harrow members have done well over the years in Middlesex classes at the National Honey Show. But building on their experience of working with wax and other hive products, Judy Earl and Doreen Tylden-Patterson went one better and won their National Class. Their entry in Class 48: Display of Home-produced Products featured a timely World War I theme, items sent to a son in the trenches.
