The specialist international beekeeping organisation

Bill Turnbull


Bill Turnbull stepped back from presenting BBC Breakfast in 2016, mentioning his desire “to spend more time beekeeping!” Although his exploits are recorded in The Bad Beekeeper’s Club, his passion for “learning by doing” and ability to inspire new beekeepers, make him an invaluable asset to the work of Bees for Development in the role of Patron. You can listen to Bill talking about our work.
