Pembrokeshire Beekeepers' Association developing native bee breed

Beekeepers in Pembrokeshire are approaching the final stage of a project to develop their own native breed of bee.

Earlier this year grants totally nearly £48,000 were awarded to the new beekeeping centre at Scolton Manor, near Haverfordwest, which is already helping to educate the public about bees and keeping the creatures.

The ultimate aim of the Pembrokeshire Beekeepers' Association is to develop a specific strain of Pembrokeshire bee, which is more resistant to damp weather and disease.
