To Bee or Not To Bee

Join us for an evening of bees, kindly hosted by Furness Beekeepers. We will start the evening with a practical, hands-on, visit to Haverthwaite Apiary, to view the hives and learn all about beekeeping, the honey production process, the importance of bees and how to care for them.

The second part of the evening will be a talk at Finsthwaite Village Hall, presented by members of Furness Beekeepers, with the opportunity to ask all those bee-related questions you have always wanted to know the answer to.

Learn from the experts as they share their practical experience about the do’s and don’ts of beekeeping, the costs, benefits, how to support them with bee-friendly plants and so much more!

The event is a first for Rusland Horizons and it will be a fascinating and interesting evening, so come and join us!

Minimum age to attend the first part of the evening at Haverthwaite Apiary is 16 years old, but everyone is welcome to join us for the talk that will follow afterwards, from 7.45pm - 9pm (approximately).

A suggested donation of £5 for members and £10 for non-members, if you are able, is requested. This will be used to cover costs of hiring the venue for the talk, with any remaining donations being split between Rusland Horizons Trust, to support its future activities, and Furness Beekeepers for the running of its Haverthwaite Apiary.

Beekeeping suits will be supplied for the visit to Haverthwaite Apiary, we just ask that you bring your own wellies please.

No dogs allowed at the event, sorry.
