Bee Keeping

Beekeeping
The important bit!
The Beekeeping Group meets weekly via Zoom on Tuesdays at 11 am. There may also be weekly Field Meetings – but with a flexible approach due to weather conditions, and can be arranged at Paul’s apiary or the participant’s own. Please remember to check the Calendar in case of any late changes to schedule. There are no costs or entrance fees.
Our group is led by Paul Vickery, and he may be contacted via the envelope link
About the group
Open to anybody who has an interest in keeping bees. It’s advisable that you have an initial understanding of beekeeping. Maybe follow the same route as other participants by taking the introductory ‘Exmoor Beginners’ Course’ first. See the Somerset Beekeepers Association for more information on this course.
This group is learning through Zoom meetings while the Coronavirus emergency is on. If you’re interested in joining, please get in touch with Paul Vickery - Bee Keeping
The group started in early 2019 with two members, who have gone from strength to strength this year, developing the skills and confidence to maintain a number of colonies at an apiary on the outskirts of town. Under DEFRA ruling, the honeybee is classified as livestock, so they have been able to attend to their hives whilst adhering to official guidelines.
We have used Zoom for question-and-answer sessions to provide guidance and support. Everybody had fun getting to grips with the technology. Members are also studying ‘Honeybee Management’ and will take the BBKA examination in November. Paul Vickery, Convenor
