The course is on the first Monday of each month for five months and is backed up with fortnightly, hands on, field days at the Club Apiary.

Best friends are forever - no matter if they speak, bark or purr.
Hi neighbours - a teen who refused to go to school has cost his parents after they were charged $50 under the Education Act.
The court heard that over a period of 62 school days, the teen was unjustifiably absent on 38 days, with a further seven classified as justified absence.
What are your thoughts? Should parents be charged if their kids wag school?
