Health and Safety Around the Apiary: led by Dr. Julia Pigott

February 24 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm


This workshop will provide guidance and practical activities to help to keep you and others safe when beekeeping and offer a forum to plan management of apiary meetings safely.

Julia is a Seasonal Bee Inspector, a First Aider and retired GP.  Her combined experience of beekeeping, many visits to different apiaries and her medical knowledge will ensure that this course provides health and safety advice which is particularly relevant for beekeepers.

The session will take place in the school hall where participants will be able to use the PE mats to provide comfort for the exercises that involve lying down.

Due to the size of the hall and the number of mats available, places  will be limited. To avoid disappointment please reserve your place asap but by 17th February at the latest.

This course is available to all members of Cumbria Beekeepers Association.

Cost £10.  

To reserve a place contact: Margaret Riches  01768 894404  mr4cnr@gmail.com

Margaret will confirm that a place has been reserved for you. The payment to Penrith Beekeepers Association will then be due.  You will be provided with the BACs details or where to send your cheque.   Further details about the session will also be supplied.

Cancellation: Unless PBKA cancels this course, refunds for cancelled places cannot be made after 17th February
