Celia is an extremely experienced beekeeper. Her interest in insects began as a child and initially focussed on butterflies and moths (a group she is still interested in and increasingly depressed about). The fascination endured through school and university, where she obtained a degree in agriculture and, when she worked as a teacher and lecturer in Biology. When she married Cyril, a keen photographer, her interest extended to photography. Life changed completely when Celia got her first hive of bees, 40 years ago, and they became a passion. During the intervening years she managed 14 hives but this has now been reduced to two at the bottom of the garden. She has, at various times, been President, Secretary and Chairman of Warwickshire BKA, served on the BBKA Examinations Board for 6 years and still tutors on the Correspondence Course and is involved in examining at all levels. Celia has written two well-known books about bee biology and behaviour, and various other aspects of honey bees.
