Locally known as The Bee Farmer, David has built up a superb reputation for producing some of the best honey around. He has branched out into many other hive related products which he sells across the country. He has also recently won an award for 'Best Local Food and Drink Producer' at the Leicestershire Tourism and Hospitality Awards 2019.
David will be joining us to talk about his bees, bee keeping and how he makes his wonderful products. There will be samples to try and you will be able to purchase some of his items on the night.

Don’t miss this chance to find out more about such an amazing job.

7.30 pm start. The talk will be in two 45 minute parts, with an interval and a chance to buy some refreshments.
