Beekeeping Taster Afternoon 2015

12th Sept 2015 - Ryton Training Apiary


The event was attended by 16 students who all gave excellent feedback on how interesting and informative they found the course and the quality of the tutors. After a showery morning the skies cleared as the students arrived. They were greeted with tea/coffee, cakes and flapjacks, and then received a general introduction from Dave. Following this, they were split into three groups who rotated around three sessions involving 'Bees, Beekeeping, equipment and the working year', 'Honey Extraction, processing, etc', and thirdly a visit to the hives to see colonies being inspected and to handle frames of bees if they wanted to.

The event was staffed by Dave Booner, Jean & Graham Hobbins, Pete & Julia Barclay, Mike Priest and Bill Crofts. Thanks to all concerned - including Cathy who kindly made the lovely flapjacks!
