To bee or not to bee? Expert will put you straight
DID you know that there are about 19,000 species of bees?
This and other interesting information about bees and beekeeping will be the thrust of an evening talk by members of the Frome Division of the Somerset Beekeepers Association.
The association is holding an awareness session to provide information for anyone interested in the subject and for those who might be considering taking up the hobby.
Beekeeper Norman Elmer will be presenting an illustrated talk entitled Bees and Beekeeping and outlining current thinking on why bee populations have been declining and what people could do to reverse the trend.
Items of beekeeping equipment and hive products will be on display.
The objectives of the association will be outlined and brief introductions given by members of the division on subjects they will are presenting as part of a beginner's course starting in January.
There will be a small charge of £2 to cover costs for the evening which will include tea and coffee if required.
The talk will be held at Frome Rugby Club on Wednesday, November 13, from 7.30pm.
