The Speakers

Julia Piggott works for Bee Ed which is a not-for-profit business started in 2010 to provide information and education about pollinators, particularly bees.

Graham Royle started beekeeping in 1988 and started to study for the BBKA examinations in 1995 when he decided he wanted to know a lot more about the bees he was keeping. His studies resulted in achieving the BBKA Master Beekeeper certificate in 2002 and the National Diploma in Beekeeping in 2004. He was also awarded the Wax Chandler’s prize in 2002. Graham currently manages 24 colonies in three apiaries. In recent years he also spent time as the Regional Bee Inspector for the North of England and the seasonal bee inspector for Cheshire.

These stalls will be there for you to browse and we hope there will be others, as yet unconfirmed.
