We are asking everyone to be vigilant in looking out for this alien species, the Asian Hornet, Vespa Velutina.
Please sign our new honey petition which calls on the Government to change the Honey labelling rules so consumers can easily recognise all countries of origin of the honey contained in a jar sold here in the UK.
Every spring we hold a series of beekeeping lessons. They are run by some of our most experienced beekeepers who will take you through the basics of how to look after a hive of bees. The sessions are very informal and are held in the evenings followed by some practical sessions at the association out apiary.
The Spring course is now full for 2020 but please contact us for further dates.
