Come and meet “The Lady in Red”, with all her family.
Hive inspections, subject to weather conditions. These meetings are very popular, so we might split the group into two to ensure beginners get hands on experience of handling bees. If you know you are allergic to insect stings please take an antihistamine beforehand, and let us know on the day.
Beesuits and gloves provided, but please bring wellingtons.
If you have your own bee suit it must be freshly washed. If it’s not we’ll politely ask you to use one of ours. We won’t allow your own leather gloves in the apiary, because of the disease risk to our lovely bees.
Date 16th June
Time 11.00 -13.00
Where The Avenue Bowling Pavilion, Saltwell Park, Gateshead. See map below.
