NBKA ANNUAL AUCTION of Bees and Beekeeping Equipment
was held on Saturday, 1st April 2017, at the Newark and Notts Show Ground
This year's auction was held in the cow shed (our usual shed was fully booked).
There were over 300 lots for auction. There were only 4 colonies for sale but they looked to be in good fettle when Norman the "Bee Whisperer" did his usual assessment of the bees. The auctioneer, Pete Bull, wasn't taking any chances, he was fully equipped in a fluorescent yellow bee suit.
