Our open days have finished for this year, but you can find us at the Hitchin Farmer market, last Saturday in every month
Unfortunately Buzzworks are unable to collect a swarm unless they are located close to one of our sites, typically within half a mile (our locations can be found under the 'About Us' menu) If you think you might have a swarm and its close to one of our sites then please contact Chris Parker (07702 213279) and we will be happy to advise & collect.
Otherwise you can find a registered local beekeeper who will come and collect the swarm by following the link to the BBKA site below (you can search by your postcode at the bottom of thier page)
It also provides useful information on how to identify a swarm of honey bees, so is worth reading before you call out a beekeeper.
We are a volunteer association that looks to help people in and around Hitchin to discover and enjoy the world of bees and to learn the craft of beekeeping. We host visits to our Buzzworks Discovery Centre where you can enjoy the bee-friendly garden, beekeeping exhibition and watch the bees at work . We also provide training courses for new and experienced beekeepers at our Honeyworks Beekeeping Centre and support local beekeepers. You can find us on Hitchin Market on the last Saturday of every month, come along for a chat and buy some of our honey.
