Welcome to the the Layton Bee Project

We are a small group of hobbyist beekeepers with an interest in demonstrating apiculture to the local community. Currently we tailor demonstrations to groups of school children during the summer term. We discuss with the children the merits of beekeeping in the community, the role bees play in ecolony and how to distinguish the honey bees from bumble bees but most importantly the visits also give children the opportunity to wear beekeeping suits and have hands on experience as a bee hive is opened by a keeper.
