We would like to extend an invitation to all new and aspiring beekeepers to our Open Day, to be held at our Bastonford Training Apiary on the 20th July. Have you thought about beekeeping but are reluctant to take that first step? Ever wondered what happens in a working beehive? Now is your chance to explore the fascinating world of honeybees.
We will be ready to answer your questions and to provide an insight into the hobby using our static displays, to include our living bee observation hive, candle-making and of course delicious local honey. For the more adventurous, we will be opening some of our beehives to demonstrate the workings of our colonies. We can provide suits and gloves (please bring appropriate footwear, wellies are ideal).
We look forward to seeing you at the Old Cyder Mill, Bastonford, WR2 4SL, on the 20th!
With the beekeeping season in full flow, we aim to hold an apiary meeting every weekend throughout the summer. Please see the events pages for the detail.
