    I would like to add my welcome to that of the other folks. I've only been on here a couple of weeks, and am learning much. I am a new beekeeper (first 2 hives this year), and find all kinds of useful information here.

    I have fond memories of my time in the U. K. I did 2 short exchange tours at RAF Mildenhall, and RAF Lakenheath in the late '70's/early 80's. One of the greatest moments of my life was when I got to shake hands with Mrs. Thatcher, when she was PM.

    Please don't be shy about posting here, I'm sure many of us on this side of the pond would like to know about beekeeping there.

    Again, welcome from a fellow beekeeper in "the Colonies."

    Welcome from me too. I spent the 1989-90 school year in Wallingford England. There I first became aware of the well organized bee keepers organizations of the UK. I'm sure you'll have lots to contribute to the forum.
