On Tuesday 16th November, again in person at Tilstock Village Hall, Pete Sutcliffe is going to talk to us about “Bees other than Apis”. There is no need to pre-register for this event. Having grown up in Yorkshire with bees in the garden, Pete Sutcliffe has been keeping bees for over thirty years now, having started out with two home-made WBCs inherited from his father. He now works in a beekeeping team with his wife : together they keep an average of 20 colonies on various sites in the Dane Valley in Cheshire. Pete is a Master Beekeeper and has held a number of senior positions within BBKA and Cheshire BKA. Pete will talk to us about species of bee other than Honeybees such as bumblebees and solitary bees.
