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
Last year’s success story
Over £1,800 worth of frames and foundation - February
120 containers of Ambrosia Syrup – July/August
35 boxes of Honey Jars – August /September
Over the year 36 club members have used the Bulk Purchasing service.
