BeekeepingAssington Mill Rural Skills and Craft Courses Hands on the (bee) Hive - 5th June 2016, 2pm to 4.30pm.

Assington Mill, Suffolk.

Tutor:   Simon Cousins - bees

An afternoon with Simon Cousins inspecting his beehives and learning how to find the queen, identify drones and workers and the different brood chambers. 

The beauty of this course is that you will have plenty of time to ask questions. 

You will be issued with the full set of special bee clothing, but you do need to bring some other items yourself (see below).

This course will only make sense if you have already done the Beekeeping for Beginners one-day course, or had some previous experience.

This is a small class, so early booking is advisable.

What to Bring
  • Wellies
  • A peaked cap
  • Two pairs of socks

Simon Cousins - bees

Simon became interested in bees about five years ago.  What started off as a hobby has now expanded into a small commercial operation, which produced half a ton of honey this year.  Jars of this honey, under his own label Stour Valley Bees, will be on sale at the course.

Simon now has about twenty hives, which he has made himself.  He is a joiner by trade and runs his own joinery business in Wormingford nearby, where he was born and bred.

This course is an introduction to the subject, with the emphasis on the practical aspects of beekeeping, and is designed for beginners.

Company:   Essex Beekeepers Association

Note:  This Event is Fully Booked.
