I have caught up with myself after having my attention somewhat diverted. Now is the time to look forward to the new year and all that it may bring.
Last year I seemed to spend months just writing about events that were cancelled. Not a week went by without me having to put lines through events. I enjoy keeping bees as much for the social aspects of beekeeping as for the fascination of how the bees organise themselves. To have no events to attend was a little disheartening.
However I have since taken on the Zoom culture and am enjoying it. No longer restricted to meetings in the South West of the UK I can now “travel” all over the country -and further afield if I so wish.
Below is a list of lectures from Somerset and Cambridge. In addition there are many lectures by BIBBA – in fact too many for me to list here! I suggest you have a look and book your place on some. We may be locked down but we need not be locked out.
