Isle of Wight holiday could feature beekeeping

People who take Isle of Wight holidays this summer will be able to learn more about beekeeping during their stay.

A grant of more than £1,600 has been awarded by The Isle of Wight Community Fund to a beekeeping project on the island.

Dorothy Haynes, the treasurer of Vectis Road Allotments in East Cowes, stated that the aim of the beekeeping project is to encourage the next generation to learn about the trade.

Speaking to the Isle of Wight County Press, she said: "Since setting up the bee project last year we have had a lot of interest from people who want to come and see the bees and learn more about them."

The Isle of Wight Beekeepers Association works hard to promote beekeeping on the island, with membership numbers approaching 100, according to the group's website.

Other beneficiaries of grants from The Isle of Wight Community Fund include Shanklin Town Brass Band, the Cowes Short Mat Bowling Club and the Ryde Skate Park Users' Group. ADNFCR-3083-ID-19720518-ADNFCR
