    Dear James,

    Thank you for your message and the very kind offer of the use of your apiary.

    Apologies for taking so long to get back to you. Since the formation of NIHBS in November, we’ve had a very busy time trying to get things up and running. There are certain parts of the country where we could do with more help and support. Where are you based?

    Best Regards

    At your education day in Athlone earlier this year I paid my membership fee. I have heard nothing since neither have I received any copy of The Four Seasons magazine.I await your reply

  10. webmaster says:

    The 4 seasons is late going out as there has been a change of editor. I’ll check with the membership sec to see if she has your details.

  11. webmaster says:

    I checked with Mary and she had your name down as a member ok but has no other contact details.
    I forwarded your email address so she should be contacting you.

    Does your membership run on the calendar year, or for one year from joining? If I join now will my membership expire at the end of 2016, in mid-November 2017 or at the end of 2017?
    With thanks

    PS No need to post this on the website unless it might help others interested.

  13. webmaster says:

    Hi Dave. It runs to the calendar year but I am pretty sure if you join now that membership will run to the end of 2017. It worked like that for late joiners in previous years. I’ll check with Mary Hyland the membership sec.

  14. webmaster says:

    Yes.Anyone joining now will get 2017 membership.

    I had some lovely blank greeting cards from NIHBS and am wondering where/how I can get some more. They had lovely pictures of the bees on front and were in packs of four.

  16. webmaster says:

    They are usually for sale at any events NIHBS attends such as Gormanston

    I have been trying to order 500 Native Bee labels. I sent order through PayPal to but this address is not being recognised. Can I order on line?
    I am in N. Ireland. Thank you.
