2021 Bee Safari   
(Open to all membership – free of charge)

Our Safari this year will be held on 26th June 2021.
This is an event when we meet at a number of apiaries and see how our Seasonal Bee Inspector checks hives and what he has to say about the members who bravely volunteer for this exercise. This is a friendly affair and a good learning opportunity too. We all make mistakes, and Gordon usually finds us out!
