Bee Keeping

The Anchor Boys were lucky to have a visit from Kenneth Allan (an ex member!) who came to tell them about his honey bees. The Boys learned about how the bees stored their honey, then they assembled a hive, before trying on the special protective suits needed to open the hives. These suits proved very popular, as did trying out the "puffer" to put the bees to sleep.

What was not so popular was the actual honey — much to our surprise very few of the Boys wanted to taste the honey and even fewer admited to liking it! However making bees in the craft group was more popular. And at least the Boys now know that honey bees are not the same as bumble bees!
