This course will be run by highly experienced beekeepers Justin Cleveland-Peck and Lisa Aitken and will run from 10.00 am until 4.00pm

Please note that this course is very weather dependent. Heavy rain and wind would prevent us from opening a hive and we may take the decision to cancel the course if the weather is not suitable.
