The scheme is a service that the club offers to all members who would like to benefit from the savings that can be gained by being part of a group whose individual orders are collated, then placed with a single supplier as a bulk order.
The aim of the scheme is that 100% of the money saved is passed on to our members; the club does not make any money.
Bulk Buying Coordinator
The Plan for 2019
January/February – orders for Foundation and Frames from Maisemore Apiaries catalogue
July/August – purchase of Syrup to feed to the bees
September – purchase of 1lb Honey Jars
Watch the Buzzette/Website for up to date information
Last year we managed to make a saving of between 15% and 26% on catalogue prices of the above items.
New for this year
This year we are extending the scheme to larger items, e.g. hives, supers, brood boxes, feeders etc from the ‘Maisemore Apiaries’ catalogue at: www.bees-online.co.uk
These will not be discounted but delivery to Tiverton will be free if the order is part of our February order for foundation.
There is no problem with the quality of products from the catalogues, but if you want Rolls Royce quality, hives made from first grade timber, contact David Pearce at Bathealton 01984 623851
