Bee Keeping in Broomfield Park

Susan Mehmet and myself have made a film about the Apiary in the Broomfield Park Orchard. I have often visited the Orchard during it’s lovely open days and enjoyed the honey sold by the volunteers, but have been a little wary of going too near the bees. However we were very pleased to hear about how the hives are looked after and how necessary they are, indeed bees ensure our plants and crops are pollinated and consequently that we are fed. The team of volunteers, led by Kim Lumley work very hard to ensure that the hives are safe so the bees can carry on their good work. They also talk to schoolchildren about their work.
