SALLY IS FAMOUS!

Our Secretary, Sally Leslie, was interviewed by the Just About Dorset magazine (available for free in local pubs etc)  and the resulting article and photos cover two whole pages!  The photos are of groups of beekeepers at BKA gatherings at Richard Norman’s apiary at Kingston Maurward.  It is difficult to recognise who’s who as everybody is wearing a veil.
