Beeswax wanted!

We have been approached by a local school which is trying to get a project off the ground to make Beeswax wraps with primary school children, to teach them about the benefits of natural ingredients and to reduce single-use plastic.

If anyone has any beeswax available (they are looking for 2.5kg if possible) please advise us and we will pass on the school contact details to you.

Many thanks.

Colony of bees in need of some TLC!

A lady in Tenby has a colony of bees in her garden which need some urgent management, as she is not a beekeeper herself, but would still like to keep them there. Honey etc produced would belong to the beekeeper. Also, an opportunity for an additional hive to be added if wanted. Would anyone who is interested, please contact us on this webpage in the first instance for further details!

Dewi was also the scriptwriter and main character of the popular S4C children’s program, ‘Dewi a’r Ditectifs Gwyllt’, (Dewi and the Wildlife Detectives).

Dewi’s talk will explore ways in which a beekeeper can make their apiary and equipment more secure from vandalism and theft, as well as covering what information a beekeeper can give to assist the police to investigate any reported incidents.
