School talk is the bees knees

The Oban Times - - FARMING -

LOCHABER Bee-keep­ing So­ci­ety cre­ated a buzz at its talk in Spean Bridge re­cently.

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the group, which was set up around 1968, vis­ited the pri­mary school last month.

Sarah Kennedy said: ‘ The talk was car­ried out by my­self and Ali­son. It was great to see the re­ac­tion of the chil­dren to see­ing the ac­tual bees and there were lots of ques­tions!

’ We talked a bit about the group – we have 53 mem­bers through­out Lochaber – the im­por­tant times of the year and what we can do to help honey bees – for ex­am­ple hav­ing a wild area in our gar­dens.’
