Things to do this autumn and winter once your bees have been tucked up.

Queen Rearing Group

So what Happened?

The Star Inn Tickenham at 7.30pm on Wednesday 15th October. All welcome.

At the start of the year some of us from the branch informally got together to try out our skills at queen rearing. We had successes, partial successes and some failures.

We are running an informal open evening to review the project. We’ll explain why we did it, what we did and what happened. Perhaps we’ll encourage some others to have a go next year.

Just come along and find out. WE promise a thought provoking and amusing evening.



Starting in January.

Once again we are running a basic course this winter.

It is designed for those who have been keeping bees for one or two seasons. Covering all the main areas in the craft you will have to opportunity of taking a practical assessment in the spring. Because all those taking the course have some experience of beekeeping it’s also a good way of exchanging your experiences.

There are seven sessions which take place in Kenn Village Hall , starting on Tuesday 20th January and then every other week. The cost is only £10. It’s a great way of extending your skills and building confidence.

If you are interested in signing up for the course or would like further information then contact Rob Francis:

Education Co-Ordinator or 01275 462914.

MODULE 1 Anyone interested?

I have been approached by a couple of people from the branch who are interested in taking this module. It is likely to be run as a self-directed learning group; ie you work together on it with some input from members who have recently taken the module.

If we have enough interest then we’ll set up a meeting and work out how to run it. Again contact Education Co-Ordinator or 01275 462914 to register interest.



The first winter cluster takes place on Tuesday 21st October at The Star in Congresbury (BS49 5AJ). Come and join us at midday for a drink , a bite to eat and a gossip about bees, amongst other things. . Everyone welcome.
