Bulk Buying Scheme 2019
NOW is the time to start planning for 2019. Attached is the new order form for Frames and Foundation. As I am away during the latter part of January and most of February, I am having to bring this ordering a month earlier than usual. I am sorry if this causes any problems. DON’T MISS THURSDAY 3rd JANUARY 2019 DEADLINE for a bargain!! Happy Christmas and a Honey New Year! Derek Evans. Bulk Purchasing Coordinator
It is time to save money on Foundation and Frames again! Bee ready for the honey flow, and use the quiet time in February/March to build your frames ready for the rush in May and June!
All frames are made from 1st grade quality wood.
Last year our members saved over £400 on our order of over £1,500
Order by 3rd January 2019. This is critical if we are to get the lowest prices for the foundation. I always try to send a confirmation of your order, by return via email.
This is an offer too good to miss! By ordering in bulk we get a 25% discount on the normal price for foundation.
Three ways of ordering:
- Download the order form from the Web Site, and send it either by post or email. Addresses are on the order form.
- Print the order form attached to the December Buzzette, complete and e-mail/post it to me, or
- Collect an order form from our 16thJanuary Branch Meeting
DO NOT FORGET ALL ORDERS BY 3rd JANUARY 2019.
This is just one of the benefits of belonging to the Tiverton Bee Keepers- SAVING MONEY!

Tiverton Bulk Purchasing Scheme
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.
T he aim of the scheme is that 100% of the money saved is passed on to our member’s; the club does not make any money.
The plan for this year
January/February – orders for Foundation, Frames and 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.
N ew for this year!
This year we are extending the scheme to larger items eg 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
