The association provides training on an informal basis. These are lecture based during the Autumn/Winter with practical training combined with the Apiary meetings during Spring/Summer. It can also support those members wishing to take BBKA examinations and assessments.
Beginner Training – 2.15pm Sunday’s in February & March
The course consists of five sessions on Sunday afternoons, starting at 2.15pm and finishing at about 3.30pm with breaks for questions and answers.
The first session is free and is an overview of beekeeping to give people a chance to decide if beekeeping is really for them.
On the second session, a fee of £40 is payable. This includes Associate membership as well as the theoretical course. It also includes the hands-on practical part of the course which takes place at the Association Apiary, every Sunday afternoon throughout the summer.
