I fancy beekeeping as a hobby - anyone got any suggestions on how to get started?

1. Get some bees; 2. Don't let them escape.

I'd like to keep bees too. A lady I know found her hay fever much improved when she started eating local honey.

Get in touch with the local beekeepers society (Google will help). They are very helpful and friendly and can point you in the right direction, including the best beekeeping course to do.

Allergic conditions such as hay fever,asthma etc seem to improve with honey,BUT it needs to be the local honey from the area/country you grew up in. There is a good positive correlation for helping allergies, but not with any random other honey no matter what the quality.

That's interesting. My allergies have got much worse since I moved to Lewes, so I thought it would be the local honey here I needed.
I grew up in Croydon, not an area renowned for its profusion of pollen-prducing blossom, so getting honey from there might prove tricky.

Bees produce honey anywhere - even in cities if there is a hive. There was a hive on our old allotment and local honey was produced and sold by quite a few people. I'm sure you could find a croydon maker through the beekepers association, ACT.

I would like to keep bees, however I have been told that I am allergic to them!

Don't take someone's word for it - get stung and see what happens!

Course at Plumpton £250 for 10 weeks (25 a night) - strangely not enough punters to make it viable - ripoff college IMHO
