‘Raising the Standards of Beekeeping Husbandry’

We cannot know what the burning issue for bee research will be by November 2016, and there will surely be practical challenges ahead (small hive beetle, tropilaelaps, Japanese hornet), but we can strive to keep our bees strong, healthy, and fit for the challenges by improving our knowledge and husbandry skills.

Let our speakers tell you how. All three are well-known, experienced and entertaining speakers with many years of practical beekeeping to draw on.

Celia Davis NDB  – “Beekeeper versus Bee”

Gerry Collins NDB“What’s going on in my Hive?”

Robert Smith NDB –  “Wild and Spaced Out!”

Ticket price : £25 includes lunch.

Other attractions include excellent raffle prizes and trade stands.
