On May 14 members enjoyed a fascinating talk on bee keeping by Frances Eachus. Fran brought along various pieces of equipment that she uses together with the inner part of a hive and illustrated her talk with images of her garden and bees. The presentation generated lots of questions and everyone felt they had gained considerable knowledge on the subject.

Other matters included the promotion of the 'Sounds Amazing' event at 'Avoncroft' museum in August to celebrate Worcestershire WI's centenary and Bewdley WI's summer outing to Hampton Court Castle on July 7.
