Hi. Im very new to beekeeping and have just(3&1/2 hours ago) installed my first hive in my garden after first checking that the neighbours don't object. I have got a fab beekeeper in Steve but he lives about 20 odd miles away. is there someone who lives nearer to me who doesn't mind being asked silly questions?

I started a beginners course but all they told me was what I already knew from the books I bought in preperation for getting the bees. There was no hands on instruction for this course, that would be on another course and that would cost a lot more money and I am fairly tight with my cash. :D

Thanks Mike. I would be more than willing to visit you in France! Today the bees are flying about getting their bearings. They seem to like my wisteria, and have come back with panniers ( is that what you call them?) full.
