Introductory Beekeeping Course – Saturday 28th February

A one-day classroom based course for the complete beginner is scheduled for Saturday 28th February 2015 at the Picton Centre, Haverfordwest.

These courses have been very popular and given many potential beekeepers the confidence to proceed to practical lessons with Pembrokeshire Beekeepers’ Association.

Places are limited and invariably fill up quickly, so booking early is strongly recommended!

To find out more and how to book, please email: pauleades@btinternet.com for details and an application form, or contact Paul on 07988 037571.

Wax Processing Session for PBKA members

We are planning to run a small informal wax processing session for a limited number of PBKA members at the Scolton Manor Honey Kitchen on Sunday 8th February, from 2pm until approximately 4pm. The session will include:

  • Processing of raw comb using a steam wax extractor
  • Safe melting of wax prior to making candles using moulds

If the session is oversubscribed, we will see about arranging an extra session or sessions as required.

If you are interested, please contact the Apiary Manager.

PBKA Secretary required

Would all members please note that the PBKA is urgently looking for a new Secretary with relevant experience. Paul Eades, who following the recent AGM is now Vice Chairman and Apiary Manager, as well as Acting Secretary, clearly cannot be expected to fill all these roles. If you are interested, or would like to discuss the role, please leave a message on this page or contact one of the Committee members asap. Many thanks.
