The first day of our two Introductory Course was Saturday 6th, it seemed to go very well with 31 attendees, I was worried the room at the Tythe barn Horsham would be too small but it was fine and all went well. The day went well because we had plenty of willing volunteers, it makes all the difference.
Unfortunately the fickle weather let us down for the afternoon at the apiary with 8C and drizzling, despite the weather most stayed well into the afternoon and were not too disappointed that the bees were not touched. There was plenty of tapping with frame making and plenty of smoke around with lighting smokers, also a table with hive parts being explained.
I would like to thank all the helper’s that gave their time to make the day run smoothly.
Let’s hope for better weather for the second day 13th April.
