It is with great sadness that I must inform you of the death of Lincolnshire Beekeepers Association Chairman Phill Raines.

Phill had been involved with the association for many years, both within his local district of Grimsby, and as QR Editor and most recently Chairman of the Association.

I am sure that many of you will have bumped into Phill over the years at the Lincolnshire Show where he loved to chat with both members and the general public about all things Beekeeping.

Kind Regards,

LBKA Vice Chairman
