Bees on the Green

£1500 has been awarded to Gwithian Residents Association to introduce Honey Bees on Gwithian Green.

On the 25th May 2015 the bees were introduced to their new hives.
Two hives were purchased and populated with the aid of the grant funding along with all the equipment required to maintain a healthy swam.  Extra funding was applied for to enable two villagers to complete a bee keeping course at Duchy College.

The production of honey is expected in the near future and the income from this will go towards the ongoing costs of keeping these bees and all the benefits they bring to the local environment.
