This autumn, Newbattle Abbey College will be offering the opportunity to develop the ancient skill of beekeeping.

A short course, which will run from September 11 until October 16, will offer participants the chance to learn about the importance of the honey bee, the hive, the problems you might encounter and of course, how to harvest your honey.

During the sessions, being held at the Dalkeith college on Wednesday evenings from 7pm-9pm, class members will also be able to observe the practicalities of bee handling in the college’s own apiary.

There are just 12 places available on the course, which runs over six weeks at a price of £50.
