Some of the activities East Devon Beekeepers participate in during the course of the beekeeping year
We Are East Devon Beekeepers!
Honiton Show 2017
International Meeting of Young Beekeepers 2017
IMYB 2017 was held at Marlborough College in July and attended by 19 teams speaking 13 different languages!
All the participants were divided up into small international teams, each team identified by their own coloured baseball cap. The tasks included activities such as frame making, grafting larvae, inspection and handling bees to show the competitors basic skills. Other tasks required problem solving with discussion and team working.
The assessments took place in the mornings. On the first afternoon the competitors were treated to a tour of Stonehenge and on the second afternoon they all departed for a DCA hunt on nearby Marlborough Downs.
