Profile of David Cramp the Editor of Apis-UK
beekeeping about 12 years ago whilst still serving in the RAF at Waddington
in Lincolnshire, with two WBC hives in the married quarter garden.
Membership of the Lincoln branch of the BBKA provided me with my essential
basic instruction and I then went on that excellent beekeeping course
then run by Alan Campion at the local agricultural college. (He is the
author of 'Bees at the bottom of your Garden' which was my beekeeping
bible. I'm glad to see that it has now been republished). After finishing
my service I undertook a years post graduate diploma in beekeeping at
the Bee Research Unit, University of Wales in Cardiff, under Professor
Robert Pickard and Dr Robert Paxton and ended it with a thesis on Drone
Congregation Areas. (A most interesting and mysterious subject).
