We have now formed a Beekeeeping club. We now have four hives sited at Banwell Castle, and our expert Beekeeper - Chris Harris would be pleased to hear from any member who would like to join us.
This club has been formed by many likeminded individuals who share a passion for the craft of beekeeping.
The aim of the Club is to promote the best beekeeping practices and to encourage and assist members to take up the craft, whilst striving to educate members of the public with regards to the importance of protecting honeybees for our future on this planet.
We would like to hear from any member who would like to join us.

Apiary Club (Another Buzz from the Bees)
Having worked very hard throughout the summer months and yielding a welcome harvest of Nature’s Liquid Gold, it is time to reward the bees for their labours with a generous feed of sugar syrup.
Last week 44lbs of syrup were distributed between the four hives at the Castle Apiary much to the delight of the bees. Another feed this week will be sufficient to carry the bees through to next spring. Chris is still looking for volunteers to help if anyone would like to learn this traditional craft.
