Beekepers are keen to create a buzz around their craft following a poor honey crop in last year’s wet summer.

Wharfedale Beekeepers Association is holding beginners classes in Skipton in March, to introduce more people to the craft.

“Keepers of honeybees had a particularly poor time of it last season,” said Jill Campbell, of Wharfedale Beekepers Association.
