I got into beekeeping by attending a very inexpensive training course on what I thought was an endangered species,  the Honey Bee,  it was held in a Barn on a Farm where there was absolutely no heating at all and we were warned to attend in warm clothing. We were provided with a hot drink mid-morning but continued to shiver, by Lunch time I decided that something must be done, so I went to the car and got two blankets.  After a lunch of hot soup and a sandwich,  we sat in our chairs, muffled up with clothing and then wrapped the blankets round us to try to keep warm. I have to say, after that year all training courses were in centrally heated accommodation. My biggest work achievement has been building up a Security Business from nothing into a Multi Million Pound company that is still growing.
