    An excellent course for a beginner. I have no experience with bees and now feel confident enough to begin keeping bees. Margaret delivers the course in a carefully structured manner, answering any queries as she goes. The course ends with a very good apiary visit, allowing you to look inside the hives and identify aspects which have been discussed earlier in the course.
    Both Gary and Margaret are very nice people who are more than happy to help I couldn’t recommend this course highly enough 🙂

    An excellent course and Margaret freely gave up extra time on the site visit to discuss beekeeping matters. Provided plenty of confidence. Would recommend this course to anyone just starting out, or like me, a former hobbyist beekeeper who had just a bit of previous experience. Plenty gained from the course.

    Good introduction to the world of bee keeping. Thanks Margaret for taking us through it. My only negative is that there seems to be a lot more to learn than I realized. Perhaps 3 evenings may work better than 2, with more info especially on the life cycle of the various bees that make up the hive. The Saturday at the hives was very good.

    This is an excellent course to help people new to beekeeping to learn the basics and build confidence about going forward with the art.

    Margaret your doing good work with offering this course so thank you for that.

    highlight was visiting the apiary and practicing a few of the skills required practical for beekeeping.

    I really enjoyed this course, I learnt so much information that has given me the confidence I need to be a hobbiest bee keeper.
    If the opportunity arose for a follow on course I would be very keen. I highly recommend this course and I have already recommended it to people I know.

    Thank you. 🐝
