‘Hive of Activity’ Taster Sessions

An informative evening was had by all who attended our bee ‘taster session’ in the visitor centre on Tuesday 26th February. The idea behind the evening was to recruit novice volunteer beekeepers to manage the honey bee hive at the Stanwick apiary.

The goal of the project is to help conserve the honey bee which is currently having a tough time, along with many other pollinators. Volunteer beekeepers enjoy a fun environment to learn the craft of beekeeping with guidance from four experienced beekeepers with 30 years’ experience between them. All bee keeping equipment is supplied by the Rockingham Forest Trust.

If you would like to get involved please join us at the next ‘taster session’ which will be held in the visitor centre on Tuesday 26th March at 6pm. We will talk you through why we are doing what we do, how it started, where we want to get to and how you can become a beekeeper. No previous experience is required. We hope to see you there!
