Excellent results at WBKA Basic Assessment

Ten PBKA members took the WBKA Basic Assessment on Sunday 21st August and we are delighted to report that all of the candidates passed with flying colours!

The WBKA Basic Assessment consists of two elements, practical and theoretical, to demonstrate a good level of understanding of the management of bees.

We would like to congratulate them all on their success, which was down to sheer dedication and hard work on their part, as well as a desire to be better beekeepers.

Well done indeed!

We are very proud of them all and hope to have more PBKA members enter the Basic Assessment next year!

So if you require advice, please email pbkaapiarymanager@live.co.uk giving us your details and we will arrange for someone to contact you to discuss your plans.
