Introduction to Beekeeping Lectures 2023 

Introduction to Beginners Beekeeping Course commences 16th January 2023.  We had hoped to fit the series of educational lectures over 4 evenings.  However, this proved quite challenging and to avoid information overload we have decided to add another 2 dates to cover all the modules.  There will be no extra cost. The 2 extra dates are 30th January  and 27th March. Details are as follows:

Venue:      The Heritage Centre, Ashford  Time:  8pm to 9pm Monday evening, on 6 dates:

    16th January;   30th January; 13th February;  13th March;  27th March; 17th April

 For those who wish to proceed to the next stage 2, you must be a member of ABKA.

We also recommend the  "Haynes Bee Manual" which is used as our reference book.  The best price available is Book Depository @ 19.25 Euro - in stock - free delivery with VAT, customs duties paid for EU.
