Meetings

Coronavirus: The meetings planned for April – June have been cancelled due to the current situation. We are hoping to resume the monthly meetings in september as the situation then permits. We expect to rearrange the cancelled meetings for future occasions.

 

We hold meetings throughout the year (except in July and August) to which everyone is welcome and which are free to attend. We usually have a guest speaker, and we cover a diverse range of interesting and informative beekeeping topics over the year; the meetings are an ideal opportunity to improve and share your knowledge, be entertained and to associate with other members over a cup of tea and piece of cake. We normally meet on the second Thursday of each month at the Crookham War Memorial Hall, Sandy Lane, Fleet, GU52 8LD at 7:45PM; Meetings aren’t held in July or August – when the beekeeping season is at its busiest; in June and December,  we usually have Summer and Christmas socials/meals in a local pub.

Members and non-members are welcome to attend our meetings to find out more about our association and beekeeping. Unlike most other BKAs, we don’t charge meeting fees – but we do request that you to make a generous donation to help fund the event and refreshments.

Here’s what you’ve missed at some of our recent meetings.

Our planned meetings are shown below – please come along and meet us (and make yourself known to one of the committee).
