Sussex UK FLOWers?


#1

Hi, thinking of returning to beekeeping after 20 years. Flow looks like a way to get restarted but would like to hook up with someone local who is using FLOW. Looking for users in SUSSEX - anyone?


#2

There is apparently a facebook page specifically for Flow Hive UK


#3

Thanks - found that and pending acceptance…R

No problem, more likely to find specific to Sussex. :slight_smile:

Help! I have a ready built flow Hive with no bees, and am new to bee keeping but have attended a course. Are there any active[quote=“RobinS, post:1, topic:8408, full:true”]

Flow Hive beekeepers in West Sussex that would like to borrow my hive for the season, or come and help me set up, as I’m unable to do it this year for medical reasons. Ideally I’d like to be able to visit, watch and learn occassionally. Is it too late for this season?

Hi Newbee55,

Responding to your post.

I’m not currently active. A move 20 or so years ago put me in a location without room for bees (without being under trees) so I may not qualify as being experienced enough any more…However, I can certainly help occasionally. I have no FLOW experience, the harvesting was always a case of borrowing a spinner and getting very messy with a few too many ‘helpers’ coming into the house. It would be great to handle bees again, listen to their chat and take time off work to watch those girls busily working…(sorry, I’m droning on a bit).

I’m in Shoreham and my work takes me mainly eastwards.

I’ll certainly keep an eye out for swarms and let you know if interested. Have had a couple in last few years, that did someone a turn.

Robin.
