The Tywardreath Community Bee Group was formed in 2015 by members of Tywardreath Gardening Club.  We purchased our first two hives and equipment with a grant from Par Bay Big Local. 

The hives are sited at Newhouse Farm, they are surrounded by wildflower meadows and a garden that is managed to benefit biodiversity. 

A group of us harvested and produced 80 jars of honey which was sold to raise funds to maintain the hives.  We also donated some jars to community events in the village to help them raise some money too.

This year thanks to support from social enterprise activities at Newhouse Farm we are purchasing more hives and running activities at the farm to involve more local people in beekeeping and gardening activities to benefit bees and pollinators.
