South East Bee Inspectors

The SE Annual Report to end 2015 records there were no EFB or AFB detected in the Greater London area. However it's all change for HBKA bee inspectors in 2016. Bucks has reverted to South region and so has RBI Julian Parker. Diane Steele is the new SE RBI, previously an SBI in Sussex. Caroline Washington has retired as N London SBI after 12 years, we wish her well and expect news of who takes over in April.

Beyond the Basic

Following the basic training course of 2015 run by Moira, a suggestion has been made that this could continue as a further discussion group  called ‘ Beyond the Basic’  Rosie and Colin have offered to host this group again starting on Thursday 25th February at their home. They have space for 12 people only to sit comfortably.
