Sunday 27July 2014
10.30am – 4pm
Bookable Bee Tours at: 11am and 2pm
Have you ever wondered about the lives of bees and what goes on inside a beehive?
Accompanied by experienced beekeepers, this is a unique opportunity to visit our Apiary, learn about the life and work of honey bees, look at their environment, the kinds of plants they need and explore inside their world.
All are welcome and there is no charge for this event although donations are welcome. There will be bookable "Bee Tours" for which numbers are strictly limited to 20 people per Tour. The Tours will enable you to see inside a hive and to hang out with the bees. Prior
booking for the Tours is essential.
All children under 16 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult.
Protective clothing will be provided for the Bee Tours but each participant must bring their own pair of wellies.
Due to the restrictions of protective clothing we cannot accommodate people less than 1metre 25cms (4ft 1") tall in the active part of the Apiary.
To book a place on a "Bee Tour" telephone 01524811978
On every Saturday from 26th April to 30th August there will be experienced beekeepers working at the Apiary. What they are doing will depend largely on what needs to be done to manage the bees effectively. All members are very welcome to drop in and develop their skills by helping out.
