Auction of Second-Hand Equipment and Live Bees

Held  4 May, 2024

Chalfonts Beekeepers Society held its biennial auction of second-hand equipment and live bees on 4th May 2024.

The weather was kind, vindicating our decision to postpone the auction from the previous Saturday when bad weather was forecast.

There was a good turnout, with 60 buyers registering to bid.  All but a handful of more than 200 lots sold, including five lots of live bees and, together with sales of new items from the Club's trading stock and elsewhere and donations for the refreshments, we took a total of over £6,500, which was a great result.


Thanks to everyone who helped in so many different ways on the day, and in particular to Bill Fisher for allowing us to overrun his home, and Mike Tucker for being such a wonderful auctioneer.  Both will receive suitable tokens of our appreciation!
