NEWBATTLE BEEKEEPERS ASSOCIATION
Founders Hive and Window Dedications
Hives of Activity
Donors contributing £500 to the fund-raising campaign were given the opportunity to dedicate a bee hive in the academy teaching apiary. With their name and company logo on the hive as well as the hive record cards and referenced by name in any discussions during practical teaching sessions. The first hive dedication was to Sue Cook. Her plaques is shown below the entrance to the hive dedicated to her. Other plaques will be shown below as the hives are dedicated.
Windows of Opportunity
The windows in the Bee Academy were in a shocking state and they were one of the big ticket items to restore. A donation of £750 allowed the donor to create a window of opportunity with their name or company logo permanently on one of the eleven windows in the building. They could create a legacy for someone else and give them a gift of a founders window.
The window shown below was commissioned by Annette & Malcolm Evans, members of the association and dedicated to the memory of their late son Oliver. The design and installation of the window was undertaken by Patricia C Smith an Edinburgh glass artist.
