Meetings

Our regular meeting programme has resumed. Due to the special conditions imposed on us as a result of the Coronavirus situation, we cannot, at present, hold conventional meetings in our usual venue and, until further notice,  all future meetings will be held using Zoom (either Video Conference or Webinar). We hope to be able to return to meeting up together as soon as possible, but we cannot say when this will be.

Under normal circumstances 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 or a focused event, and we cover a diverse range of interesting and informative beekeeping topics over the year; the meetings are an ideal opportunity to improve your knowledge, be entertained and swap stories with other beekeepers.

Here are some of the speakers and topics we’ve covered at our recent meetings.

Our planned meetings are shown below; further details will be added when available and we will send email reminders along with a Zoom link in advance of each meeting. Please reserve the following dates in your diary:
