Couple of local events coming up which may be of interest to beekeepers – and indeed anyone interested in the natural world.
Saturday 14th April
Radipole Park is holding a day entitled “Nurture Nature and Welcome Wildlife” from 11am to 3pm on Saturday 14th April. There will be a chance to meet wildlife experts as well as children’s activities and refreshments available.
Monday 14th May for two weeks to Sunday 27th May
Poundbury Garden Centre will have a display set up by Dorchester and Weymouth Bee Keepers Association. This is to coincide with World Bee Day on Sunday 20th May. We expect a lot of interest in the stand and we are looking for volunteers to be there to answer questions. From experience I can tell you many of the questions will be of the sort “Have you been stung?” and “Does it hurt?”. The aim is to raise profile of the bees and their importance in pollination. Honey is a tasty extra.
If you can spare an hour or two then do let Sally know. There is tea/coffee for volunteers!
