Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age

I think Rosemary went on one last year - Doune and Dunblane beekeepers.  But I have to be honest, after reading about all the hassle collecting the honey and timings and looking after the bees I think I'm going to pass on this.  Probably got enough on my plate anyways. ::)

Edinburgh and midlothian bee keepers run one from March to May, one evening per week for 40, at Broxburn.  I have requested details but haven't yet received a reply.

Dunblane and Stirling Beekeepers are running a beginners course. I went last year and it was excellent. I'm kind of toying with the idea of doing it again but it's a hell of a hike from here. If you are in the area, I'd highly recommend it. Really nice, helpful people. I'll be keeping up my membership even though we're out of area now.

Furness Beekeepers are running beginners courses in March. Its at Greenodd village hall and I think there is a small charge (a few quid)
