Postponement of Apiary Training Sessions

In the light of the current Coronavirus issue, the Association has regrettably decided that it is necessary to cancel all apiary training sessions at both The Rhos and Scolton Manor, until further notice.

In the meantime, members both old and new can telephone for ‘virtual’ advice and assistance with regard to any beekeeping problems they may encounter.

Note that a short video clip or photo sent initially via email to pbkaapiarymanager@live.co.uk may assist us when giving advice, on the basis that a picture is worth a thousand words!

We recognise that many new beekeepers in particular will be disappointed at the absence of the ever popular Beginner Sessions and we hope to be able to reinstate them later in the season.

In order to continue to help those new to beekeeping, Jeremy, who organizes these sessions will be producing a series of short videos for the website, based on the ‘Basic Assessment’ curriculum, to guide our newer members along the path to becoming an efficient and effective beekeeper.

If anyone has a particular aspect of beekeeping that they would like to see explained via a video, then please let us know. This service is also intended to deter newer members from seeking advice that is currently to be found on the internet, not least as much of it is of dubious quality and some of it downright misleading.

For advice contact: Alan on 07867 988597, Jeremy on 07799 698568 or Paul on 07988 037571
