A select group of members attended PDBKA’s second, and hopefully last, AGM by Zoom – how we miss tea & cake in the PCC!

The business of the meeting – to receive the Reports and Accounts for 2021, to elect the Committee, to present certificates for BBKA qualifications achieved and to award the special trophy to the 2021 ‘Unsung Hero’ – was completed well within the hour leaving time for the new PDBKA Chairman Hilary Hayward to introduce Neil Mariner as Apiary Coordinator and to outline the plans for 2022.

Retiring Committee members – Chairman Graham Rowden, Minutes Secretary Elizabeth Eveleigh and Pippa Barker – were thanked for their service to the Association.

All who have been involved in the Association during the past difficult two years will approve retiring Apiary Manager Rowan Roberts as the very well deserved recipient of the ‘Unsung Hero’ award.
