Why not make one from your two hives might be an obvious reply but why not

Tom,

Two hives but no colonies, I would think.

The wording is misleading to lots of new beeks, I am sure.

Brian Ripley, of the Alnwick and District Beekeepers Association believes there are many people who would love to be able to keep bees themselves.

“We are going to set up a training apiary and give people a hive of their own for 12 months, and if at the end of the time they want to keep going they can take the bees away to their own apiary."

What an offer for anyone wanting to start up!

C'mon Admin, not quite for 'anyone'; well not in the sense of 'everyone'. Travelling from your neck of the woods (or even mine) to Alnwick for weekly inspections in the summer might just prove a bit prohibitive!

Sounds a good deal for the locals though - they will just need a hive if they want the bees - but not tooo local, or half the bees might just go back to the apiary.

Regards, RAB
