Beekeeping

Bees make all the difference to an active allotment

Bees make a wonderful addition to any allotment site as they play a critical role in the pollination of so many plants, especially fruit crops. Higher yields and better quality produce will result from having hives near your site.

If you see a bee swarm over the allotments please contact one of our beekeepers as below.

  • Michael Lyons – 07882 875 110

If someone on the site is allergic to bees please make sure that they are aware of what action is necessary in the event of a sting and and take their medical needs into account. The NHS website has useful information about what to do when someone is stung by a bee or other insect and/or has an extreme reaction to a bite or sting.

Further advice and information on bees can be found at the Ealing and District Beekeepers Association, link to their website below.
