Once again our Taster Sessions are proving to be very popular and last Saturday we saw 65 delegates attending our Temple Newsam apiary. After an apprehensive start the 'wannabee' beekeepers soon settled in and eagerly investigated the contents of the hives. The lovely sunny day brought out the best in the bees - no-one received any stings. At the end of the session one delegate declared 'it was the best Christmas present ever'- she'd been gifted a place on the course several months ago. She's now hoping to follow- up her session by booking onto the beginners beekeeping course in the near future. The next Taster session on Sat 11th August still has places left in the afternoon but the morning session is already full - clearly an indication of public interest in bees and beekeeping.
