Monthly Meetings

 

Our monthly meetings  include beekeeping talks, demonstrations and a question and answer forum where members can pick each others brains for that useful tip.

We enjoy meeting new people interested in our beekeeping and non-members are welcome to come along to meetings to find out more, have a chat and decide if you’d like to join our club.

All meetings will start at 2pm, unless otherwise stated, and there will be a committee member present from 1:30pm if you would like to speak to them.
