One of our members, David Lucas, sadly passed away last year and his wife, Ann, who is also a member, has kindly donated his collection of bee and beekeeping related books to the Association. Our Committee decided to auction the books as a means of raising funds for Bees Abroad in memory of our Honorary Member Pam Gregory, who also passed away last year after a long illness. Pam was one of the charity's founders and was an active member of our Association who was instrumental in the setting up of our current Beginners' Course. Bees Abroad is a non-profit organisation giving help to beekeepers and families in developing countries by providing education and technical advice in beekeeping and suitable business skills.
A list of all the books to be auctioned is available here. They will be available to view prior to the auction start. We have set a minimum price of £2 for each, except for three more valuable books which have specific higher reserve prices. We hope to have some fun and raise money for a good cause in the process, so do please come along and bid for a book, or two, or three.....
The auction will be held after our Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, 8th March 2016, which starts at 8 p.m. and is held at the Millennium Hall in Cellan.
