Welcome to the North of England Beekeepers' Convention 2015
After a wonderful summer, most beekeepers celebrated 2014 as the best beekeeping year for a decade. What can we do to retain the strength of our colonies? Sue Cobey is renowned for her knowledge about the selection and maintenance of strong bee stocks and is travelling from California to share her expertise with us. Pollination is vital too and Rinke Vinkenoog celebrates the value of Himalayan Balsam to bees. Patience is a virtue in beekeeping and an essential for photographing our friends in flight, as Simon Croson will explain.
The following organisations have confirmed that they will have exhibition/trade stalls at our event. Please contact them direct to order in advance for collection on the day.
We are delighted to announce that there will be a RAFFLE held on the day, with over 20 amazing prizes to win. And this year we will also be holding a SILENT AUCTION giving you the chance to bid for some fabulous goods.
