Not much about the birds but plenty of info on the bees at open day

VISITORS to Manea on Saturday may not have found anywhere to learn about the birds but there was no shortage of enthusiasts keen to teach them about the bees.

Mary Larham, who runs the Manea School of Gardening, hosted an open day which included experts in bee keeping and offered visitors the chance to buy bee keeping equipment.

The open day was helped by members of the Manea Beekeeping Group who also auctioned off some items of bee keeping equipment made by Roy Eastol who now lives in the village.

Roy is a former wood working teacher who makes beehives in kit form and made up for those keen to take up the pastime.

For those fired with enthusiasm for other aspects of rural living, Jonathan Horton of Downham Market was on hand with his display of patio fires.
