BBKA Okehampton Branch, Basic Beekeeping Course
Eight Sessions, starting January 2023.
Okehampton Beekeepers are running a Beekeeping Training Course of 8 evening sessions. These will be held fortnightly, at Whiddon Down Village Hall, from 7 pm to 9 pm on alternate Wednesday evenings from January 18th through to May 3rd next year (2023).
The course costs £100, payable in advance at the initial session on January 18th. Payment can be by card, cheque or cash.
Alternatively to pay on-line, see website https://okehamptonbee.co.uk and access the Membership Form, to be found on the Membership Page, for bank details. If paying on-line then be sure to put your name as reference and e-mail confirmation to the Branch Treasurer.
Payment in full will automatically include:
Please note; Course applicants who have already paid their membership, only need to pay a fee of £61.
The course will follow the syllabus required for the BBKA Basic Assessment. Course students are encouraged to take the Basic Assessment once they have completed the course and have kept bees for their first year (but this is of course optional). Membership of Okehampton Beekeepers entitles course students to reimbursement of the Basic Assessment Exam fee (£25) on successfully passing the exam.
Course session dates are fortnightly, on alternate Wednesdays, as follows: January 18, February 1, February 15, March 1, March 15, March 29, April 19 and May 3. A number of informal follow-up practical sessions in May and June will give the opportunity to handle and inspect colonies of bees, putting into practice knowledge learnt during the course. To book a place on the course or for further information please contact Liz Ledsham by phone on 01363 881486 or by E-mail at email@example.com .
