Meet the bees

Idg5 JPf25 G UD 21743404 862644993900907 5873740875092058306 O

Sun 19th May, 2019, 1pm to 2pm

A half day experience for the bee fan who would like to know more.
We start off with a short talk on some of the basic aspects of bee keeping; including the life cycle of bees, the jobs they do and an introduction to the equipment used.
An opportunity to look inside a hive will follow as we suit up (bee suits provided) and head out to the apiary to carry out a hive inspection.
This experience is a great choice for anyone who has ever thought about keeping bees but would like an opportunity to get a little hands on before diving in.

Bee suits and gloves will be provided, however, you will need to bring wellies (recommended) or sturdy shoes and socks you can tuck the bee suit into.
The experience will run from 1:00pm to 4:00pm, please arrive ten minutes before the start time to allow for sign in and making a cuppa.
