Beginners finding their wings

David Packham (centre) with a group of new beekeepers

Today was the last practical session for our budding new beekeepers which brings their course to an end. Today's session was down to the group taking the lead to demonstrate and practice what they have learnt throughout the course with expert guidance from David Packham, Seasonal Bee Inspector.

The day was split into two sessions so that everyone had a chance to open up the hives and go through looking at the health of the colonies, spotting queens and checking there was sufficient stores.

Well done everyone and we very much hope we'll see you up at the apiary as you continue your beekeeping journeys.
