What we do
Training Apiary Meetings
IN LINE WITH GOVERNMENT ADVICE, WE HAVE RELUCTANTLY TAKEN THE DECISION TO CLOSE THE APIARY FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE.
Under normal circumstances we hold weekly Saturday morning meetings from April until November. For new members we train them to handle bees and help them build their confidence so they can have their own bees. For more experienced members we arrange timely topics including disease recognition, comb changing, swarm control and we also run a queen rearing programme.
Shows and Events
Honey harvesting weekends are our speciality but we also visit general local shows to reach out to the public. Some of our members attend talks to local clubs etc. Our members also help out with other groups that arrange events: eg The South of England Show.
It doesn't all stop at the end of the season. During the winter and off season, we hold a series of talks and demonstrations on beekeeping and other related subjects. These are a blend of informative and social meetings.
