The Queensferry Men’s Shed held its first meeting on Friday 18 March, with eight stalwarts keen to become involved. There was talk of potato growing and deep digging, all over coffee and biscuits.
If you would like to join in, then why not come along on Friday 25 March from 10 am. There may even be hot cross buns.
Beekeeping in March
We are still meeting every Sunday and Monday from 1:30 pm down at the hives. Jobs done so far include building ramps for the bees and laying astroturf on the paths around the area. The bees are now flying quite happily, which gives us a chance to check on their diets and where they are going. Lunch this week has been mainly from snowdrops and the profusion of catkins.
Thanks to all those who attended the open meeting for Men’s Shed on 8 March at Craigie’s. Particular thanks to Lorna Russell from QCCC, who provided tea, coffee and sandwiches and to Tim Green from Age Scotland for his continued support.
The group will meet as a shed for the first time on 18 March at 10 am at Craigie’s classroom.
