Ross-on-Wye residents are in for a treat with the upcoming Spring and Summer programme of evening events at Ross Library.

The first event will be All about the Bees, Tuesday April 4, featuring speaker, author, and beekeeper Meriet Duncan.

She will share her wealth of knowledge with attendees, providing fascinating insights into the lives of these incredible insects.

The talk promises to be informative, entertaining, and engaging, as Meriet shares her passion for bees and the crucial role they play in the ecosystem.
