If you require any further details or have any ideas for future meetings, please contact our events officer.

Summer Programme 2015

From May until September we gather at different apiaries whatever the weather. Meetings have a topic related to beekeeping but most importantly there is always a leisurely Jacob's Join tea. We have protective beekeeping clothing available to lend; if possible contact one of us first so that we can make sure we have the right equipment available to fit you. Coming to an apiary is a good way to gain the opportunity of seeing inside a beehive.

Unless otherwise stated, all apiary visits start at 2:30pm.
