A Beehive in the Churchyard?

Fosma is thinking of arranging for a beehive to be situated in the churchyard and, before we do, we want to make sure we have canvassed public opinion to make sure we have the right support? We are thinking about installing it in a quiet corner of the churchyard and funding its maintenance through selling sponsorship. The honey we make would be part of the sponsorship package and those who are interested would be able to come and “meet” the bees and be given a short talk by the professional beekeeper who has agreed to look after them for us.
