Sun 15 Aug 2021 10:00 - Taster Day
Venue: Awbridge Village Hall Organised by R&DBKA
We welcome anyone with an interest in honeybees and pollinators. This full day will consist of a short theory session followed by practical work and - weather permitting - a visit to the bees. If the weather is against us we will ensure that an alternative date is offered. Attending a taster day is a good way of checking whether you want to take your fascination further and enrol on a beginners' course, which is strongly advised for your sake and the bees'.
