One of 'new-bees', children learning the basics of beekeeping so they can start looking after our bees in the new season... A new Junior Certificate group... already studying for their exam next year and our Qualified junior beekeepers who are now taking their skills to the next level with more advanced work!
Today our two advanced groups set to work extracting the last of this seasons honey. Mr Tett our beekeeping buddy came along to give expert advice. The children did brilliantly uncapping the frames and spinning them in the extractor. Everyone enjoyed putting their honey into jars to take home (and cleaning up all the extra honey with spoons!) The Junior Certificate children will be writing all about their sticky afternoon in their diaries for the exam! The team also prepared our show honey for the Kendal & South Westmorland Beekeepers Honey Show...fingers crossed, we will keep you posted!
