Over the course of the 2 days, 17 schools had booked 30 minute slots to attend our exhibition with several trying unsuccessfully to book on the day. In total, 479 children had a beekeeping experience with us and will have learnt some important information about the bees. We hope that some of the children who were enthralled by the experience will become the beekeepers of the tomorrow.
A big thank you to Rebekah Jenkins, Sandy Goodall, Sally Goodall, Tony Bowes, Helen Gregory, Sue Price, Chriss Line, Cath Graham, Dave Cook, Trish Naughton Liza Kinder, Allison Eagle-Heaton, Kim Walters, Ann Chamley and Angela Utley for giving their time to make this event possible for the children.
