My partner, Jon turned 50 at the beginning of September this year and he is very difficult to buy for! He always says he’s easy to buy for, all he wants is a sailing boat! No, he didn’t get that, maybe next year! He did, though get a great present from his mum and dad – A Taster Beekeeping Course At Buckfast Abbey.

Being adventurous is good for the soul.
