David Burns Course

Here's a picture of our education coordinator David Burns receiving his certificates from

Peter Girling for passing several BBKA exams. David will be running the Beekeeping Course shown above. David is an ex high school teacher and has passed more BBKA exams than most of our members. He has 50+ hives (and plans to double this number!) and is keen to encourage more L&DBKA members to take the BBKA Basic Assessment. 
Each session stands alone so you don't have to commit yourself to attending all four sessions. Attendance is open to all L&DBKA members, whether you are just starting or have kept bees for many years. Booking is essential.
