Will be going ahead at alternative venue – see previous post for details.
We will be demonstrating hive and frame assembly, hive scorching, for used equipment. Experienced beekeepers will be on hand for beginners to get to know over a cup of tea. And lots more.
See you there.
In May of this year eight beekeepers from the Association successfully took the WBKA Basic Assessment. Paul Eades and Jeremy Percy achieving distinctions with Paul scoring ‘the highest mark ever since the WBKA started recording them’.
All those taking part felt that preparing and taking this assessment was very valuable to them and they plan to take at least the Honeybee Management (Module 1) next year.
The full results in alphabetic order:
John Dudman – Credit
George Durham – Credit
Paul Eades – Distinction
John Myers – Pass
Tom Pegg – Credit
Jeremy Percy – Distinction

We want to encourage all of our members to take the WBKA Examinations starting with the Basic Assessment. PBKA Members wishing to take the Basic Assessment next year should contact PBKA Training using the form below.
