A hive of activity

Todmorden’s community beekeeping group – the Bee Friendly Collective – is offering another weekend introduction to the world of beekeeping.

The course will be held on Saturday, May 25 (2pm to 4pm) and Sunday, May 26 (11am to 4pm) and is £10 for non members.

It will look at the life of the honeybee, hive management, the beekeeping year and a variety of different types of hive. Sunday will include a “meet the bees” session.

“This is part of the BFC’s ongoing commitment to getting more people involved with bees,” said Alan Southgate of the collective. “Last year’s courses were oversubscribed so I would encourage anyone interested in discovering more about the world of beekeeping – including an opportunity to observe and handle live bees – to contact us as soon as possible.”
