You would have received emails today on a couple of issues.
I am trying to make sure all infor is up to date and we are ready for the season ahead.
If you are down as a mentor and you don't want to be - let me know
If you are not down as a mentor and want to be - let me know
If you are a member waiting for a swarm then a new page has been set up so you can see your position on the list - click HERE
If you don't have equipment or you are not ready - let me know!
If you are not on the list and you want to be - let me know!
If it is your go and someone attempts to contact you and you don't answer - you will be put to the bottom of the list. If you miss two separate calls, you won't be on the list anymore!
Honestly, a lot of time is being wasted by a lot of people (all of which are volunteers) with people not keeping me up to date.
Swarm collectors don't have lots of time to be ringing half of the Midlands to see if they want a swarm of bees. They are trying to help you!
Sorry for the negative tone, but a lovely swarm was available yesterday and we couldn't get hold of people who said they wanted bees!!
