Covid shop arrangements

Following a recent Committee meeting we have formulated a plan to supply members with beekeeping supplies from our shop whilst observing the current social distancing  advice.

The plan is to re-open on Saturday mornings each week during the active beekeeping season starting on 16th May.

Members  wishing to purchase from our shop must pre-order via  email to

Orders must be submitted by the Thursday of each week.  On Friday you will receive email confirmation and a pick up time for collection on Saturday morning. Collection will be from a table in the rear car park.  Card payment or cheques are the preferred method of payment. We will not be taking cash payment at present.

Please note that email order requests received after the Thursday cutoff may not get processed until the following week. Members should not expect additional items to be added at the time of visit and should not visit the shop unless you have an acknowledgement of a timed pick up.

I’m sure we will miss the additional social chat of Friday evenings, but I’m sure we will continue to adapt as we gain experience of supporting members under the current rules.
