A summary

The course includes 4 evening theory sessions and usually 3 hive visits at a member’s apiary. You will be invited to handle bees with protective equipment available to borrow for the sessions. A beekeeping book is included in the course fee which will be published in the autumn. Couples from the same household will each receive a different book. Details of the breakdown of the course will be posted on the website in the autumn and full payment will be required when booking to secure a place. The course is very popular and is usually fully booked by Christmas. We look forward to welcoming you.

My experience consists of a leisure activity, on a specific date(s), and therefore the 14-day ‘cooling off period’ under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 does not apply.
