PENINSULA BEEKEEPERS.

FORMATION OF BRANCH OF NATIONAL ASSOCIATION.

On Thursday last a meeting of Peninsula beekeepers was held at Duvauchelle, when Mr VV. Lyall presided over a small attendance. The object in calling the meeting was to form a branch of the National Beekeepers' Association.

After discussion, it was decided to form a branch of the Association, and twelve or fourteen beefarmers con sented to join.

It was decided to have a field meet ing later in the season, and then selec officers and draw up rules,

Mr W. Bray explained the woik done by the National Association body already in arranging for the export market tbis season, and it was decided that until the officers of the new branch were elected, members could get all information from Mr Bray re export and other matters.

By experience it was stated that beefarmers got a better price by exporting, as it relieved the local market. As evidence of ifs relieving the local market, it wa3 stated tbat honey was selling at higher prices locally than it did six months ago

It was reported that the season was shaping well, and a spell of hot weather would be welcome. It was expected there would be a big crop of honey from Peninsula beefarmers tbis summer.
