Our speaker this month was Yvonne Mathews who gave us a talk entitled ‘7 Secrets to Health from the Beehive’
Yvonne gave a very informative and fascinating talk, in a humorous and entertaining style, on keeping bees. Yvonne has been bee keeping for over ten years and has 13 hives in North Wales. She described how she had harvested their honey and other products including pollen, beeswax, nectar and propolis. Yvonne has a background in complimentary medicine and extolled the health benefits of the products from bees. She explained that there were over 300 types of bees but her focus is on keeping honey bees. Yvonne now has a stall at Glastonbury Festival. Members were able to purchase some of her natural products.
Members had really enjoyed the ‘Food to Fork’ morning at Tatton Park organised by the group and are looking forward to a visit to Manchester Airport later this month.
Anyone who is interested in visiting joining us is welcome to attend our next meeting to be held on Wednesday 3rd April at 7.30pm in Lower Peover School, when Brian Greene will give a talk entitled ‘The Brill Building. Sound we grew up to’.
