Teams arrive in the IMYB venue at Nerac in France. Our 3 English competitors are Robyn, 15, from Hexham Beekeepers Association, in Northumberland, Natalie, 13, from Calderstones School in Liverpool and May, 15, who comes from Romsey Beekeepers in Hampshire.
IMYB is an annual meeting ensured by a multinational non-profit community for young people interested in beekeeping. Even though the event started in 2010 as an initiative of a few countries from central Europe lead by the Czech Republic, it has gained a large popularity and has become the largest international meeting for young beekeepers worldwide.

It is designed for participants in the age from 12 to 16 who compare their knowledge and skills, establish new friendships and find more about other countries and cultures during usually a four-day meeting.
