Bees keep vis­i­tors busy too

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - FRONT PAGE -

THE bees were in­deed busy for vis­i­tors to an open day in Cheese­man’s Green. The Ash­ford Bee­keep­ers opened their gar­den gate and wel­comed curious vis­i­tors to watch th­ese fas­ci­nat­ing in­sects in ac­tion. With bumper blos­som dis­plays and fields of oil seed rape to for­age, the bees were seen col­lect­ing nec­tar and pollen. Ex­pe­ri­enced mem­bers chat­ted to vis­i­tors, in­clud­ing some young­sters, who wanted to know more about the pas­time, pro­vid­ing pro­tec­tive cloth­ing if they asked to get closer. The next meet­ing will be at Ruckinge vil­lage hall on Satur­day, June 2, from 10am un­til 4pm.
