The Bee Academy was in full use over the weekend with Saturday seeing our members sitting the SBA Modular exams that they had prepared for over the past weeks at the Tuesday evening study group sessions. Many thanks to Neil Rutherford for leading these groups. Eight candidates entered for the examinations. Most were sitting Module Six ( Honey Bee Behaviour) Two candidates sat the Module One (Honey Bee Management) examination and One candidate Module Three (Honey Bee Diseases, Pests and Poisoning)
Sunday saw ten members working to produce some of the items that will on on sale in the Bee Academy building on Saturday 23 November when the association participates in the Newbattle Abbey College Christmas Fair that will open to the public at 11:00. The work party spent their time making Beeswax Wraps, Seed Balls and Beeswax Candles.
