A welcome letter from the Chairman .

            

  Dear Beekeeper,

 

                             Please have a look round our website.  It is packed with information which will help you become a beekeeper or, if you already are one, help you become a better beekeeper.

      I was appointed chairman at our last AGM in March and we re about to enter another exciting chapter in our short history.  Darlington Council have been very supportive in assisting us establish a COMMUNITY APIARY at the Denes Park in the centre of Darlington and we have now been given permission by the Darlington Planning Department to open our new apiary on the site of the old bowling green at the Denes.  This will be an exciting and rewarding project and we very much hope that local residents and young people in that area of darlington will get behind the project and help us establish what should be an extremely useful resouce for the people of Darlington.  The first stage will be to work closely with Friends of the Earth and work out a plan for developing the site and to turn it in to an attractive wild flower meadow which can be enjoyed by all.  Establishing hives of bees on the site will further enhance the facilities.  We hope to announce plans for putting on training and information days soon.  If you are interested in getting involved and perhaps helping us with the planting please get in touch - details of our officers can be found on the “OFFICERS” page of this website.

     2014 looks as though it will be a great year for beekeeping and I wish everyone good luck

 

Malcolm Harding(Chairman)
