From the 7th to the 9th of July we had the pleasure of being part of the 8th International Meeting of Young Bee Keepers, held this year in the beautiful surroundings of Marlborough College.

Young people between the ages of 12 and 16, from 19 different Nationalities mixed happily in teams to compete for group and individual trophies.

We had been asked to take 20 colonies of our beautiful bees in adition to judging a couple of the activities undertaken over the two days of competition. Standards were very high and we had an amazingly interesting few days.
