“Please say a big thank you to both the Division and the Conference Committee for presenting such a great conference, and in such amazing surroundings. I was soooo pleased with my book won on the raffle, when I arrived first thing and saw it on the raffle table I crossed my fingers and had I not won it I would have made a point of buying a copy.” JS

“Cracking line up of speakers made for a very informative and enjoyable day.” PSAF

“Having attended the event with two colleagues from the NBKT all I can say: It was fantastic! The organisers, I believe Epping Forest branch, deserve great praise for putting together such an interesting programme, very much focused on questions of bee nutrition and forage conditions, which strikes me as extremely relevant for beekeepers.”

“Also, this one-day-convention was packed to capacity … as 130 participants was the capacity limit of the very lovely venue.”

“We felt really heartened to see that the emphasis on the needs of the bees of the entire programme attracted so much interest in the beekeeping community. There was so much to learn, and the final talk about meadows incredibly inspiring … imagine the country covered in nectar rich flowers.”

“Fabulous, inspiring day and many, many thanks to the hardworking people who laid it on! Congratulations and thank you!”
