Welcoming world’s young beekeepers

The England team ready for IMYB 2017

Vita is delighted to be a major sponsor for the International Meeting of Young Beekeepers that is coming to Britain in just over one month’s time.

More than 20 teams of young beekeepers aged 12 to 16 will descend on the beautiful and historic Wiltshire town of Marlborough to test their beekeeping skills and knowledge.

Working in mixed nationality teams of six, communication will be the key as they take on challenges like … well, actually we don’t even know because it’s all being kept top secret to surprise the entrants.

Vita’s Blogger has been called into action to see if he can find a Drone Congregation Area in the vicinity so that the youngsters can take a break in competition to go for a hike one afternoon.

Set in the prehistoric landscape of Avebury and Stonehenge, visitors are in for a treat – with visits to those sites and Bath too.

For space reasons the event is private, but Bee Craft’s Richard Rickitt will be there to video some of the action and post it on You Tube. We’ll keep you informed.
