I am committed to developing beekeeping and improving bee husbandry; I give lectures and practical demonstrations to other Associations, belonging to Avon myself. I believe strongly in getting young people involved in learning about bees and beekeeping and in encouraging an understanding of these wonderful creatures. Since taking early retirement, after a career in teaching and charity work overseas, I am able to further pursue my interests in bees and in Chelonia.

I have been a beekeeper for 12 years and run 20+ hives.  During this time I have studied and passed all the modules and passed the practical exams to become a Master Beekeeper. I have also passed the Microscopy certificate.  I give lectures, practical demonstrations and have run study groups for Modules.  I am an assessor for the Basic, Bee Health, General and Advanced Husbandry exams.  I set and mark papers for the modular assessments.

I have delivered courses, organised study days, and lectured both Nationally and Internationally.
