This weekend some of our branch members went along to the Holsworthy Spring Convention. The day was packed with talks and workshops to suit new and wiser beekeepers from around the Devon region.
If that wasn’t enough to take in, there were trade stands, raffle and a rather delicious buffet lunch (10/10 for the rhubarb and custard) as well as homemade cakes and refreshments served throughout the day!
There was a definite buzz at the convention with around 120 beekeepers attending the event.
