No inspection this week!

Cliffe Castle Bee Blog #16 2023

As the beekeeping season slows down a little, so our inspections of the colony in the Observation Hive at Cliffe Castle have now reduced to fortnightly. Our next inspection will be on Monday 24 July, so check back in a week to find out what we discover then!

Meanwhile, don't forget that there will be a Beekeeper by the Hive on Tuesday afternoons throughout the school summer holidays from 1.30 to 3.30pm. Do pop down with your beekeeping questions!
