WOULD-BE beekeepers are invited to a taster session run by Taunton Beekeepers at their teaching apiary on Sunday, July 13.

The half-day course will include the theory behind keeping honey bees, a tour of the apiary and a chance to handle bees.

Organiser Lin Uglow said: “You will get to put on a bee suit, see a smoker at work and probably get to handle some bees. This way you can work out if you actually enjoy this hobby before embarking on a full blown training course.”

The programme at Heatherton Park Teaching Apiary at Bradford on Tone costs £30 and includes afternoon refreshments. Places are limited. For information or to book a place, contact Lin Uglow on 07884 264025 or
