Successful opening weekend of Pembrokeshire Beekeeping Centre

Friday 18th July 2014 marked the beginning of a very successful weekend for the PBKA, with the official opening of the ‘Pembrokeshire Beekeeping Centre’ at Scolton Manor by Edwina Hart AM, Minister for Economy, Science and Transport, together with the launch of Scolton’s own Victorian Walled Garden project.

Saturday featured an Open Day at the Centre as part of National Countryside Week and the ‘Bee Hive’ exhibition was overflowing all afternoon with members of the public coming in to watch the honey extracting demonstration in the ‘Honey Kitchen’ and live pictures from the ‘hive cam’! Members of the PBKA were also present to talk to the public and give hive inspection demonstrations at the ‘Pine Tree Apiary’.

On Sunday, we held another beekeeping training session at the apiary, which was followed as always with tea and Rosemary’s fabulous (and dare I say it? – famous) cakes, which she always keeps us generously supplied with!

If you haven’t been up to see the Pembrokeshire Beekeeping Centre yet, it is well worth the trip with something for the whole family!

We hope to see you there soon!
