Roseland Beekeeping Group – Heligan Events – Summer Buzz
Saturday 20th July kicked off our summer events at the Lost Gardens of Heligan. It was the opening day of the Summer Buzz event programme. Our event tent was set up down by the Hide, next to the group’s apiary. We were joined by the Wildlife Trust, National Trust and 3 Bays Wildlife. There were a number of other attractions running throughout the day, such as butterfly face painting, butterfly & bees walk through the wildflower meadows of Heligan, making it a very interesting day for all the visitors
In our tent we had our observation hive up and running with ‘Spot The Queen’, Candle Rolling and a display of various beekeeping equipment including an ‘Eco Tree Hive’.
It was a quiet start to the day but by the afternoon it was ticking over nicely, the volunteers happily engaging with the visitors and chatting about the wonders of bees. All in all a very enjoyable day and much thanks to all those who help out.
