CANCELLED Mid-Kent: Introduction to Beekeeping Course

9th May 2020 @ 10:00 am - 10th May 2020 @ 4:00 pm


As you are aware, the government has advised that we stop all social interaction.  therefore we have had to postpone the Introduction to Beekeeping Course which was to run 9/10 May 2020 at Bradbourne House.

Included in your course fee was membership to the KBKA Mid Kent Branch and this will continue.  Membership includes the two monthly magazines Bee Craft and BBKA Journal as well as our own branch newsletter.  

An additional part of your entitlement is access to our branch apiary at Bradbourne House for two hours each Sunday morning and other branch activities.  Branch meetings include guest speakers and also the support from other beekeepers old and new who share their experiences.  However, unfortunately, all these get-togethers and meetings have had to be cancelled until further notice.

For those of you who already have your bees or are planning to get some in the near future, we can offer online support.  In this way we hope to answer your questions and concerns as they arise.  Don’t hesitate to get in touch – & 07484 680946 (Secretary Mid Kent Branch)
