Introductory beekeeping course

A one-day classroom based beekeeping course for the complete beginner is scheduled for Saturday 10th March 2018 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.

Note that places are now filling up quickly, so if you are interested please get in touch asap.

To find out how to book a place, please email: pauleades@btinternet.com for details and an application form.

New Apiary required – urgently!

As members will know, the Beginners training has been carried out at Kethins Farm, Haverfordwest for many years. Unfortunately, the owner has decided to renovate the farm buildings to be more commercial in nature and has asked the PBKA to vacate the place as soon as possible.

This is a big blow and we now need to quickly identify an alternative location to carry on this valuable service for new members.

The basic requirement is for sufficient and suitable space for a dozen hives, enough parking for a dozen or so cars and preferably a shed or outbuilding for storage of equipment and for somewhere to sit and discuss all things bee related.

If any member has, or knows, of a potentially suitable site then please give the Chairman, Jerry Percy a ring on 01437 751357.
