Guidance From Scottish Bee Health Inspectorate

The Bee Health Teams of DEFRA, the Scottish and Welsh Governments have issued their advice and guidance for beekeeping in the UK given the current restrictions around COVID-19, which can be found by clicking here.

This guidance has been published on Beebase and if you are not already registered on Beebase it is a good idea to do so, not only will you receive notifications like this but also alerts if there is EFB or AFB within your area.

In summary, you should continue to care and manage your honey bee stocks in the normal manner whilst observing the government’s guidance on COVID-19 and social distancing.

Should you have any queries or need anything please do not hesitate to contact us.

We hope you and your bees stay safe and well.

 2nd placed team incl Scotlands HarrietsInternational Meeting of Young Beekeepers 2017

This is only the second year that Scotland has entered a team, and this year Harriet Sweatman (pictured far left) ventured down to Marlborough College, 6th - 9th July to represent Scotland.

This year it was England's turn to host this prestigious event where 19 countries attended from as far afield as India, Israel, Lebanon and Russia to those closer to home, like France and Ireland. The 11 - 16 year old competitors were split into teams so the teams contained a mix of countries. Harriet was in a team that had competitors from Belarus, Germany, Ireland, Slovakia and Slovenia.

And it's wonderful to let you know that the team Harriet was a member of came 2nd overall in the competition!.

The winner of the highest individual score was an Austrian girl, Carla Heil.

Professional photographs of the event can currently be found on the IMYB Facebook page and on the ICYB website.

A selection of photographs can also be found in our own gallery here. 

On behalf of the Scottish Beekeepers Association Harriet, congratulations !
