Many thanks to our members who participated in making our participation at the Midlothian Schools Careers Event of P5/6 pupils at the National Mining Museum such a great success. We were able to engage with pupils from ten Midlothian Primary Schools over the course of the day as well as the class teachers and parent helpers. In all around 300 pupils attended the event and many of them visited the Newbattle Beekeepers Association stand and engaged in conversation with our outreach team.
Jonathan H and his wife created an interactive visual aid to show the importance of pollination and pollinators in the food chain. It was very popular with the young visitors to our stand was instrumental in starting of many of our conversations with the children.
