Beginners Beekeeping Course

A one-day classroom based course for the complete beginner is scheduled for Saturday 8th April 2017 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.

WBKA Basic Assessment

The PBKA is very keen to improve its education and training programme, which includes encouraging members to take the WBKA Basic Assessment in order to promote high standards of beekeeping. We would like to hold an assessment here in Pembrokeshire if we can get enough participants, so if you would like to enrol please contact Lynfa Davies, WBKA Exam Secretary, at education@wbka.com as soon as possible please.
