For an early May evening, we've selected a topic that may not be mainstream for most surveyors, but which has an impact on the lives of all of us: "The importance of bees". Those of you who read the RICS Land Journal may have seen an article on beekeeping in RICS Land Journal, October-November 2018 and earlier articles on the importance to agriculture of pollination by bees.
In this talk, Charles Oliver-Bellasis, past-chairman of the Hampshire Beekeepers' Association, explains the role of bees in agriculture and the process of beekeeping, bringing along a variety of equipment to illustrate his talk.
Date/time: Wednesday, 1 May 2019, 6.30pm. Refreshments from 6.00pm.
Venue: Shaw House, Church Road, Newbury RG14 2DR.
Cost: FREE to 3CPD subscribers, APC candidates and students; £20 (incl. VAT) for non-subscribers.
To book, please contact Guy Pullen, email@example.com, (t) 01844 274830.
Shaw House, a Grade I listed house on the outskirts of Newbury, was built in 1581 and stands today as an extremely important survival of an Elizabethan house. Over the years it has been a family home, a school and a dilapidating shell, but in January 2005 its restoration commenced and it re-opened to the public in October 2008.

This event was organised by 3CPD Ltd, a not-for-profit organisation offering CPD and social events across Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire and neighbouring counties for RICS members and others working in the construction and property sectors. 3CPD is run by local chartered surveyors.
