Craft_Out_WestHi Everyone,

Very exciting news that we will bee attending the annual “Craft Out West” event of 2013.

We got an invitation from Adele White who forms part of the team arranging the event. Adele explained that “…Craft Out West, is a two day craft show held annually to raise money for Hospice West Auckland.”



“…This will be the shows sixth year. It was previously held in July but this year it has been moved to the second weekend in November i.e. 9th and 10th (10am to 4pm both days). A great opportunity or Christmas gift shoppers as well as lovers of handcrafts and art. In past years there have been 2,000 – 3,000 visitors to the show over the weekend.”

We were very excited and grateful for the opportunity, so of course we said ‘yes'.

Our stand will have a display of beekeeping hardware – including a beehive but no Bees… you know… health and safety and all that.Kiwimana hive on hive stand

We will Bee sharing our love of Bees with the public by promoting ‘backyard beekeeping'.
