Building Bee Hotels

Club member Bob opened up his workshop this past Saturday for the club to make bee hotels.

Armed with wood from an old project, and advice and blue print plans from Hal Hopkins, members went to town with the power tools!

Everyone had a great time. When the storm clouds did start to roll in, the builders moved the party into the garage for Rickie's lemon squares and tea and coffee.

It was hard work, but overall a lovely afternoon.
