“We hope that this award marks the beginning of Redesdale becoming a safe haven for one of our greatest natural treasures, the native honey bee.” – Dr. Dorian Pritchard, Redesdale Beekeeping Group
We are delighted to announce the Redesdale Beekeeping Group have been awarded £2,000 through our Community Heritage Fund for their work conserving the native honey bee.
The award will contribute to the building of a conservation apiary near Byrness. The Group will also run a programme of research, lectures and practical workshops in hive building, general beekeeping, bee wing morphometry (as a check on native status) and queen rearing aimed at non-beekeepers as well as developing beekeepers.
