I might be moving to Molesworth area soon. Are there any beekeepers in the area? More importantly is there anywhere I can raise the girls?

I believe there's plenty of beekeepers there Gary.Introduce yourself on this forum: http://www.beekeepingforum.co.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=2 ,it's mostly beekeepers from the UK and I've seen folks from the Cambridgeshire area on it.From looking at Google maps it's all English country side in that area

Soooo your leaving us a U.S.F.? Whose going to teach the classes if you go?

Not my area of the UK. The national organisation is the British BKA with 20,000 members. Under the BBKA umbrella there are lots of area and town/city BKA's. I am sure Cambridgeshire will be covered. There is lots of information and advice I could give you --- but one step at a time. You know where I am.

HMMMM another thing we can thank the Obama administration for I guess. :roll:

Are they still going to have a bee workshop there? And if so who will be holding them?

There are more people stepping up the last two years. I really hope it does not die now. We have a great set of hives, a honey house, and a good reputation in the community.

Judith Evans responded to my request to join the Cambridgeshire Beekeepers Association. I can be a British beekeeper as soon as I hit the UK. Thank you Crackerbee.

Add my name to the list of those sorry about your possible departure. I checked out the beekeeping forum Crackerbee linked and I see where one person asked if you had thought about moving to Canada!

I will not be far from a computer and sharing on this forum. Somebody said they really do not heat the houses there. You walk around bundled up.

tecumseh:
my wife who has spent quite a deal of time in Europe tells me it is quite common in much of Europe for the house to be heat poorly relative to american standards.

and good luck in your new billet (or at least that is what we use to called them in the US Navy).

I must protest that canadien beer is better than English. Guinness really puts them all to shame.

Ok, well that's actually Irish, but still. >:)

I think it is an exciting opportunity to experience a different culture. I hope, if you go, it is a fun and fulfilling adventure!

love,
ziffa

ABK:

Sorry to hear about your forced move.

Don't worry though, after 3 or 4 pints of Guiness Stout, driving on the left side of the road will feel normal. :drinks: :p
