Kate and Lorraine ready to make their first sale
Newbattle Abbey College held their annual Christmas Fair on Saturday 24 November and Newbattle Beekeepers Association were able to play a significant part in the proceedings. We set up 'shop' in our new Bee Academy and had a full offering of honey and bees wax products including for the first time bees wax cloths made by members and bread boards made by Michaela Huber for sale.
