The Lincoln Bee auction

Anyone looking to buy Hives, Live Bees, and Beekeeping equipment, could do a lot worse than attend the annual sale held on APRIL 3rd, at the Lincolnshire showground on the A15 just on the outskirts of Lincoln.

It is always an interesting day out, and good to meet fellow Beeks and have a good natter with like minded folk.

Ps  selling starts at 12 noon, veiwing from 9am onwards.

Looks like I might have to trot along to that! I live about 10 minutes drive away from the Showground!

Hi Darren, Whereabouts are you in the county? I will try and put you in touch with your local branch of the BBKA, The best way to start out is really by doing a starters course. Good luck

Darren, Try john Benson on 01754 820740  He is secretary of the Boston and Carrington branch of Lincolnshire BKA. Boston only has a few members, if you can get to Sleaford, it has a far bigger membership, try Ann Holderness on 01529 302774.Hope this is of some help.

Anne Holderness and her husband were two of the "instructors" on a beginners bee-keeping course I did early last year. Both are very very knowledgeable and approachable.
