Meet the Bees Sessions

We are planning a “Meet the Bees” day or afternoon which will be a friendly informal chat at our Mid Kent Apiary clubhouse and an introduction to the bees in the Apiary.  This will be a useful experience to see how you feel with the bees before taking a more comprehensive course or buying equipment.

It is likely to be at short notice as dependant on the weather forecast, and will be minimal cost depending on numbers.

If you are interested in meeting the clubs bees please contact Susan Chartier our Course Co-Ordinator via email or phone on 07484 680946
