A day with the bees – public open day 8th May 2021

As part of our charitable objective we aim to raise awareness about honey bees, generate interest and provide education. Every year we run a free public open taster day in the Spring / Summer where members of the public aged 6 upwards can listen to a short talk about honey bees and then open a hive and see what goes on inside.
