As an amateur beekeeper, I have fitted keeping 2 -10 (-ish) colonies around family, work and other commitments for over 30 years. I am also notorious for having maintained an observation hive in our living room.  For around 25 years I have been involved in the training of beekeepers in my local association and more recently (having become a Master Beekeeper in 2013) I have been a Correspondence Course Tutor and an Assessor for the BBKA Basic and General Husbandry qualifications.

Showing honey and hive products since the mid-1990s stimulated the expansion of my honey and hive product repertoire. Knowing the fun showing has given me, and keen to support shows in future, led to my qualifying as a BBKA Honey Judge in 2018.

For many years, I have also enjoyed participating in the BBKA Spring Convention and have been on its Committee since 2015. Initially I was responsible for accommodation and catering and since 2017 I have chaired the team of volunteers who form the BBKA Spring Convention Committee.
