Hi I'm Dan and I am based in Norden near Rochdale.
I'm completely new to bee keeping but I'm interested in learning . I have an acre of land with trees hedges and wild flowers.
I guess the first step for me is to attend a basic bee keeper course . Can anyone advise me on when and where I might be able to fine one?
Many thanks.

Hi Dan, I guess you have already found this by now, but try Manchester beekeepers, based at Heaton Park, they have a great teaching set up there. Not sure what they have done this year, but I imagine they will have courses in the spring, once things settle down

Hi Dan
At present it seems a lot of areas won’t be running a Beginners Course so, just in case you can’t get one near you, South Cheshire are planning to run a course on Zoom as they had so many on a waiting list left over from last year. Details are still being finalised.
