Really sorry that you haven't gotten a reply to this request Hannah.
As you say natural beekeepers are a little thin on a ground so it is quite difficult finding one in your area.
Do not despair though I have muddled though with help from this forum and a lot of reading. Phil also does a few reasonably priced courses a year that you could go to for a "top up".
Best of luck

Conserving wild bees

Research suggests that bumble bee boxes have a very low success rate in actually attracting bees into them. We find that if you create an environment where first of all you can attract mice inside, such as a pile of stones, a drystone wall, paving slabs with intentionally made cavities underneath, this will increase the success rate.

Most bumble bee species need a dry space about the size a football, with a narrow entrance tunnel approximately 2cm in diameter and 20 cm long. Most species nest underground along the base of a linear feature such as a hedge or wall. Sites need to be sheltered and out of direct sunlight.

There is a spectacular display of wild bee hotels here
