Beekeeping Taster Day @ Rudgwick Village Hall

Have you or anyone you know ever thought of keeping bees, but needed to know more? This one-day course on Saturday 14 March 2020 at Rudgwick Village Hall will provide enough information to answer any questions you may have. Come along and find out more without any obligation. This is a popular annual event, now in its fifteenth year, organised by the Wisborough Green Beekeepers Association, whose members live in West Sussex, South Surrey, and beyond. This day makes a good grounding for the practical ‘Preliminary Sessions’ that we will be running at our teaching apiary near Wisborough Green next Spring.

We have vouchers for those who want to give the course as an unusual but worthwhile present. Further information for beekeepers and non-beekeepers including our Preliminary Sessions which provide the opportunity to handle bees can be found on www.wgbka.org.uk.
