Apiary Meeting

Honey friendly flowers

About 40 people came to Charlotte's talk on Bee friendly flowers at Wellscourt last Sunday. John introduced the Meeting and told us something of the history of his house. I certainly had not realised that there was a connection with H.G.Wells and there is a description of Wellscourt on pages 30 - 33 of "Mr Britling sees it through" (1916). In fact this book gives us an insight into life in our area at the outset of the First World War.

Back to the Meeting, not only was Charlotte's talk fascinating but the cream tea afterwards was superb. Thanks to everyone involved for what was an excellent, informative and tasty afternoon.
