Thanks to Hexham Beekeeping Association our young people were able to visit an apiary to learn about bees and beekeeping. Through hands on practical experience, they were able to go through bee colonies. They were very observant and even spotted the queen bee. They learned - NO BEES, NO POLLINATION. NO POLLINATION, NO FRUIT OR VEGETABLES!
We got a positive message back from Hexham Beekeepers "It was lovely to meet Jill and the children from The Bridges School. Their behaviour was exemplary and they are a credit to the work you do. I hope they all enjoyed themselves and take pride in showing their classmates the frame of honey. Any time you want to repeat the exercise we would be delighted to welcome you to our apiary".
