North of England Beekeepers' Convention
We were in Newcastle last Saturday for the North of England Beekeepers Convention. A great day for meeting fellow beekeepers, listening to lectures and looking at trade exhibits. There was a very interesting talk by Professor Keith Delaplane which looked at the evolution of bees to help explain their super-organism nature. There was also quite a challenging talk by Gareth John on treatment-free beekeeping.
