Budding beekeepers will be able to try on a protective suit and look inside a hive at an event in Fewston next month.

Professional apiarist Bill Cadmore will hold a beekeeping workshop, Get the Buzz, at the Washburn Heritage Centre from 9.30am to 4.30pm on Thursday, May 29.

The day, which will also involves building a frame for bees and, weather permitting, looking around a colony, costs £25, or £19.50 for Washburn Society members. A two-course, homemade lunch and refreshments are included.

Places are limited so booking is essential. For more details, contact Rachel Batchelor by sending an e-mail to centre@washburnvalley.org or calling (01943) 880794.
