Stephen Poxon, Barnsley, Yorkshire

Stephen has been keeping bees for 4 years, with 7 hives at Coal Pit Lane Allotments a few minutes from his house.  I visited Stephen on 5th November, with fireworks going off everywhere!  It was late when I got there after a long drive  so parking up was a challenge (always is with me, I like a drive straight in space!), Stephen was looking on rather too anxiously - apparently I was parking up next to his car, and he's a driving instructor!!  Parking lessons when I next visit...  His bees have been foraging on blackberry, balsam, raspberry and clover.
