Bees in the Garden – 40th Anniversary Special

Did you know that this year we are celebrating 40 years of our permanent apiary sighting on the Shugborough Estate?

A small piece of land was granted by the estate and opened by Lord Lichfield on 3rd September 1983.

On 2nd September, South Staffs Beekeepers will be celebrating in the Walled Garden of the Shugborough Estate (opposite reception) between 10am and 3pm.

There will be games and children’s activities, honey tasting and sales a candle rolling workshop and an opportunity to meet our beekeepers and our bees in the observation hive!

Come on down and celebrate with us, we can’t wait to see you!
