Examining a comb.

Being able to 'read' a comb is a vital skill in bee husbandry.

This year we are changing the organisation of our 'Introduction to Beekeeping' course in the hope that it will give better support to our new beekeepers.

We are offering an eight week course, one year's membership to the British Beekeepers' Association (which includes membership to the Devon Association of which we are a branch, plus hands on experience at the Cockington apiary throughout the following summer for the cost of £120.

However, for existing members and those who would like to repeat last year's course, we are offering you the opportunity to repeat the winter theory sessions at the cost of £75 - the same price as last year.

We find that many people like to repeat the course as, having had a summer of handling bees and gaining a better understanding of them, revisiting the theory course reinforces their learning and further underpins what they have already learned.

The dates for the winter theory course are:

November 14th

November 28th
December 12th,
January 16th

January 30th
February 13th

February 27th

March 13th.

The course will be held on Monday evenings,

from 7.30 - 9.30 pm at The Gerston Christian Centre. Paignton
