The British Beekeeper's Association (BBKA) Show Team have been giving families at Compton Verney mansion in Warwickshire a fascinating show of Beekeeping skills.

Local volunteers are helping to celebrate all things pollinator. As well as the ever popular live bee inspections, beekeepers are helping to raise awareness of the importance of a long season of forage for pollinators. The exhibit is also extolling the value of quality honey from your "local beekeeper".  

Visitors can discover more about honey extractions or try their hand at the ancient art of skep making. They can learn about the processes used to catch swarms or join in with beeswax candle rolling. 

You can also join the Compton Verney grounds team who are showing you how to create a successful wildflower meadow in your garden.
