Following on from Mike Cullen's talk in October 2019 we would encourage members to consider taking the BBKA Basic Assessment. It is recommended that you should have managed at least one colony of bees for a minimum of 12 months and so, given that the assessment will take place next spring/summer, it would be best if you have had bees this season. If you have only started beekeeping in the last year, we would welcome anyone interested, but recommend you only actually apply to do the Basic Assessment once you have been through the experience of swarming - in other words in July or August.
We are proposing to run a workshop or 2, followed by a practical, to help you work through the necessary information to be prepared for the assessment. In order to get an idea of numbers interested please could you fill in the form below:
