Tyneside Beekeepers' Apiary
The former Gateshead Council Central Nursery is now being used by the environmental charity Groundwork, though they need to be off the site in two years as the Council is selling it for executive housing. Nevertheless, Groundwork have offered the recently-established Tyneside Beekeepers Association a corner of unused land for use as a temporary apiary. So a group of us visited it recently to help clear it ready for use. We also provided the lunch - game pie and blackberry and ricotta flan left over from the Bowes Show.
