Well at last it is auction day and for those who have not yet got down to the auction at Sunninghill Community Hall at Sunninghill Prep School, South Walks Road, Dorchester DT1 1EB here is some of what you are missing.
If you have anything to sell then bring it down between 11:00 and 13:00 to book it in and the auction itself will start at 14:00. How long it goes on for depends on how much we have to sell and how keen the bidding.
There is plenty of parking.
I have just been down to watch the setting up and there is a lot going on. Below are pictures I took of some of the items which will be for sale this afternoon.
If you are a new beekeeper then this is your chance to pick up a complete kit for a bargain price – and there are plenty of experts there to help you choose.
If you are an old beekeeper then here is a chance to replace the things that have worn out – though there are no new backbones for those of us who think Supers have got heavier.
See you there.
