BEES IN BURUNDI with Harry Owens  BEM – 7pm Wednesday 15th November 2023

Despite a few technical hitches with the media equipment Harry managed to save the day with his excellent talk about his visit to Burundi with Christian Aid to teach the local women the best way to keep bees in order to make a decent living from them.  Everyone enjoyed the talk and lots of questions were fired at Harry who was able to answer all of them in detail.  Thank You Harry, we had a great evening in your company.
