The BEES project was about bringing together beekeepers from across South East Wales to:-

  • Explore and develop a local/regional Queen Bee breeding programme to supply a quality bee with good characteristics and survivability to meet the needs of the local market.
  • Raise awareness of bee’s, beekeeping and its importance to biological systems and diversity with organisations, schools and the general public
  1. Work Co-operatively to facilitate the sharing of skills, ideas and best practice between beekeepers.

The project co-operated with three LAG areas (Local Action Groups)
– Vale of Usk (Monmouthshire and Newport)
– Cwm a Mynydd (Caerphilly and Blaenau Gwent)
– Rural Action MRCT (Merthyr and Rhondda Cynon Taff)
