Beekeeping Friends and Associates
For the Kendal & South Westmorland Beekeepers, 2021 was, as for most of us, another difficult year. In order to protect our more senior and medically vulnerable members many meetings were again cancelled and although there were more Internet Conferenced meetings were conducted, we did manage a few face-to-face events and apiary meetings, welcoming the comradery of the association’s usual warm and friendly meetings. That said, both the active School Bee Clubs continued to function, inspiring the next generation of beekeepers, all within strict COVID-19 Government guidelines, and with the positive consent of the parents and teaching staff. Not All examinations for the BBKA’s certificates were cancelled this year, and there were a few more Basic and honey bee health certificated awarded this year. we will be starting afresh this year, with support teams, to commence where we left off with Basic and Honey Bee Health certificate courses for the 2022 examinations, to improve our understanding and enjoyment of managing our lovely bees.

all pollinators are killed.
