Would you like to keep Bees?We actively encourage new members to join us and take part in this fascinating hobby. More popular than ever, beekeeping is a fascinating craft that is fun to learn and the perfect antidote to the stress of modern life! The West Glamorgan Beekeepers Associationhas a responsibility to promote Beekeeping in the local community. To achieve this, we hold year long classes in Beekeeping. The course for 2016, includes: 10 Theory classes starting at 7pm on Tues 23rd February at the Cwmbwrla Day Centre, Cwmbwrla, Swansea. SA5 8LD. These indoor classes have now finished and we are currently holding weekly practical classes from May - December (weather dependant) handling 'live' bees with experienced beekeepers in attendance at our training Apiary in Penllergaer, Swansea. See our News page for more information. Also, Email email@example.com. Honeybees, 'Natures Little Helpers', play a vital role in helping crops and flowers to develop by pollination, act as a monitor for the environment and of course, produce honey which has both health giving and healing properties. Without bees for pollination, it has been estimated that mankind would die out within 5 years! Now more than ever, the bees need our help to survive. Just remember, we cannot live without them! We really do need them MORE than they need us!!
