Welcome to Eltham Bees Limited

Hi, I'm Colin. I am a qualified beekeeper, a member of the Beefarmers association and dedicated to honeybees. I started training as a beekeeper in 2009 and have built up from maintaining one hive to over 88+ commercial hives.

For those interested in what beekeeping involves, I will be writing my weekly blog which will contain all of the fun and games throughout the season, along with ideas, tips and suggestions.

About me

I have been in engineering for 35 years and have gone on to become a welding engineer and instructor at a large London university.

I am happily married to my very understanding wife and, as well as my beekeeping, spend my spare time on my sustainable wood work, amateur radio M7EBL and enjoying my grandchildren.
