Pete,
What an offer - unfortunately a bit far away for me - fancy moving nearer!

However if i'm ever near Brum, can I come and visit?

Can't be Chris B, The Hedgerow Pete I heard of is a security hound and would never compromise his operation by letting strangers wander about his shed.

From what I heard, he even vets the bees for varroa, so that they don't sneak in.:p

From your profile 2 colonies and 14x12 hives, I could be forgiven for thinking that you have already started?

Yorkshire Tea. The best you can get... without easy access to Lyon's or Barry's.

Lead-legs (and other newbees who don't understand the nomenclature),

Colonies refer to bees, hives refer to their houses.
