Calderstones​ ​School​ ​in​ ​Liverpool​ ​has​ ​been​ ​shortlisted​ ​for​ ​ECO​ ​School​ ​Project of​ ​the​ ​Year​ ​in​ ​the​ ​North​ ​West. 6 pupils at the school recently received the first Junior Beekeeping certificates under the BBKA’s (British Beekeepers Association) new School Scheme.
The latest newsletter from BBKA Vice Chairman Margaret Wilson is full of interesting stuff about new exams and how well the current entrants did. It also explains how events at the next Spring Convention will be colour coded so you can work out which session suits your level of beekeeping experience.
The BBKA has launched a new JustGiving campaign to raise £2000 to get schools skilled in beekeeping. The money raised will be used to give 80 Junior schools or 40 senior schools the chance to join our new schools membership scheme.
Bidfood has launched a pioneering pollination campaign to help raise awareness of declining numbers of pollinators. With 24 Bidfood sites across the country involved, activities include building bee ‘hotels’, creating bee-friendly gardens and helping local beekeepers by donating sugar and sponsoring local hives.
