Today, Mr Stanley and Mr Haycock went to check on our two colonies of bees. Our original colony – the Bordon bees – are in great shape and are beginning to store plenty of honey, so we are confident that we will be able to extract some honey in the autumn. Our second colony of bees also brought good news: the queen has now mated and is laying brood. We are expecting the numbers of bees in the colony to expand rapidly in the next few weeks.
In other news, Mr Stanley ordered twenty chess sets to bring out to Kafuro in late July and they arrived at Liss yesterday. Mr Stanley is looking forward to teaching the Kafuro children how to play chess in a few weeks time.
