    Description

    Retired Primary Principal School Teacher since 2018. Married with 6 children, (3 in college and 1 in secondary and 2 in primary).Live in a renovated school teachers house in the country. My wife looks after approx 6-7 bee hives which are seasonal (Feb to Sep) and we have a tunnel and big garden. It's a lovely tranquil setting on a mature site with lots of trees and shrubs and we are trying to make it as bee friendly as possible.
