Sunday Meeting Postponed

At last the sun has come out!

Unfortunately, we're going to have to postpone Sunday's meetup, but I'm really keen that we get together as soon as possible. I've created a doodle (link below) for a visit to the farm to sort out the hive and get everything ready for the summer. I've put lots of dates to make it as open to as many people as possible.

Please do let me know if you have any trouble with the link, or have any questions at all.

If you would like to join Norwich Community Bees as a paid-up member, please let me know. Our bank account accepts electronic payments, or I'm happy to take cash or cheques on 15th if you're able to come along. I'll bring some membership certificates, and full membership gives you a share in any of the fine products that the bees might make to share with us.
