Training Update

The BeeHolder, Spring 2014

We have run two Beekeeping courses at Gregynog so far this year, with the help of Brian Goodwin. Both were well received and are reviewed separately in the Beeholder. Many thanks to Brian for all his hard work. We are hoping to arrange a Basic Beekeeping Assessment at the Apiary sometime over the summer. It would help if members could let me know if they are interested in doing the assessment so that I have an idea of numbers when setting it up (training@montybees.org.uk). Do consider it if you have been beekeeping for a couple of years and have done Brian’s intermediate beekeeping course. It is well worth the revision, and is a good opportunity to dust off all those beekeeping books you have on your bookshelf, as well as to get to grips with things like disease recognition. Details of the syllabus are on the Welsh Beekeepers website. Honestly, it is almost fun.
