Well the weather could hardly be better for the first ever BeeFest on Poundbury’s Big Field – the correct address for which is “The Great Field, Poundbury (Peverell Avenue East DT1 3RH)” .
The aim of the Beefest is to show how important bees are to us, to the environment, the economy and so much more. This is the first time this event has been staged in Poundbury and the plan is to make it an annual event.
The local beekeepers have been putting in a lot of work and amongst things they will be showing are candle rolling, frame making, honey tasting and of course there will be honey for sale. There will also be enthusiastic bee keepers – to be honest I have never met a beekeeper who is not enthusiastic – who will be able to offer advice if you are thinking of keeping bees.
