Learn About Bee Keeping
The JBKA has for a number of years run a course for those interested in finding out more about bees and beekeeping and who may want to start keeping bees. This year's course has now started and there are no more places available. However, if you wish to find out more about the course, click on the links below or on the Beekeeping Clases item on the main menu. You can register your interest in next year's course by sending an e-mail to the Honorary Secretary, Judy Collins either via this website or on 07797 790420.
We have added a new page to the site which has the programme of classes and all the handouts for the classes available to download. Just click on the Beekeeping Classes item on the main menu.
Come and find out more about these fascinating creatures and how you can help to preserve them and harvest delicious honey too!!
