As part of The Hive Honey Shop’s commitment to giving back to the community, we have agreed a free ‘Bee Talk’ tomorrow at the Rotary Club Battersea. James our 4th generation Master Beekeeper will give the talk along side a colourful powerpoint presentation on the history of The Hive Honey Shop and our years of service to the local and international community. The Hive have been giving free adult and children’s talks for over 25 years. Small groups are invited to the shop, or when possible, we go to local schools to spread the word- ‘How To Help Our Bees!’
For many many years the Rotary Club Battersea has held a free Christmas Day Event for the elderly of Wandsworth, this requires a great deal of work, but everyone guests and volunteer helpers all have a great time. The whole Hamill family donated their Christmas day in 2015 volunteering to support this great cause and will do so again this year.
Here is a brief on the Battersea Rotary Club and the great things they do.

Membership is open to men and women drawn from business and professional people in the community, we are non-political, and non-religious.
Rotary exists to assist the under-privileged, and provides educational and humanitarian service to the community at a local, national and international level, therefore benefiting the lives of others, in our community and also internationally.
