We look after the landscaping for the Veolia Staffordshire Energy Recovery Facility situated at Four Ashes. The site management has expressed an interest in having an apiary on their site as part of their wider efforts to improve site biodiversity. We have no
experience at keeping bees ourselves so wondered if this was something that you would be interested in running?
The site will cover all costs associated with the project, including the purchasing of the hives, and labour costs associated with ongoing maintenance.
There is access all year round to the site, with the only exception of limited access when they have a site maintenance shutdown, which is usually in May and lasts for around 2 weeks – access can be gained but ideally would be minimal during a shutdown.
The location for the hives is in a quiet area on the back of the site, adjacent to a large native wetland meadow, and there is space for at least 2 or 3 hives in the area I have in mind.
If you are interested, give me a call on the details below, or send me an email. I would be happy to meet someone on site to view the proposed area.

My name is Jake and I am the QSS Coordinator at Lyreco, an office stationary and business solutions supplier based in Telford. We are in need of a new beekeeper for our onsite apiary which is located closer to south Staffordshire than some parts of Shropshire. We still have 4 of the 5 hives originally installed in 2015. The location is on an industrial site near a residential area making it a challenge and not for the
Our beehives are maintained at the beekeepers discretion and are happy to come to a shared arrangement with regard to the honey.
Our hives will need replacing soon and we are happy to fund and support this with the beekeeper as we have our own on site building services team.
