Myself and Sue Lang ran two beginner courses in 2010. Sue has kept bees for several years and is the apiarist for one of Beds BKA apiaries. I have been keeping bees for more than 20 years and I hold the Intermediate Theory Certificate. Both of us are honey suppliers in each of our areas. Both of us also are speakers for Beds BKA beginners courses.
