A bee hive frame that has been removed from the hive box.

After losing almost 300 colonies of bees to vandals who destroyed his hives, beekeeper Craig Campbell thought he had no option but to close down.

However, thanks to the Howick community he now has a glimmer of hope that he may be able to pick up from where he left off.

Campbell estimates the damage to be close to R600 000 and says thousands of bees were killed during the vandalism of his property in New Hanover last month.
