I mentioned the other day that we went on a beekeeping course last week at Bill Quay Community Farm in Gateshead. The course tutors were Mark and Kym Pritchard who keep bees out in the Tyne Valley near Hexham.
During the course, a swarm of bees appeared so we trooped out to watch Mark and Kym capture it.
We also checked out the bee hives.
We hope to start keeping bees next year. Watch this space!
