Most people, especially those involved in agriculture, horticulture or who are keen gardeners, will have heard of the concerns about the diminishing numbers of honey bees. Not only are bees a vital link in much of our food production, but their life history as individual bees and as colonies is a fascinating study.
It is, therefore, a real privilege that within this parish key research is taking place, known as the Instrumented Hive Project (IHP), as well as the instigation of a club to which all are welcome
All the activity is based around Harracott Village Hall with a scientific base located at St Michael’s School. There are also social activities, crafts etc. which also take place at Harracott on a Tuesday afternoon and some evenings.
