    Great to see hives on site and a start to develop the apiary. This will be a very important asset for the club for teaching and hands on experience for members. 

    On another matter I congratulate all the new committee on their election and feel confident the club will really develop under their stewardship. 

    As Andrew pointed out during his Secretary report we have a large number of members who have not listed their bee registration number on their member profile. I remind all members that it is now a requirement that all beekeepers be registered. Please ensure your registration is completed.

    Today we moved the club hives to their new home overlooking the St John's community garden. An exciting development!

    The club has a Flow hive at the Saxon St site.  I have an electronic hive scale attached and I thought you might be interested to see the data.  Not much nectar coming in at present - Melbourne weather! (although there was a good week Jan 5-12)
