Next Club meeting

​

Annual Barbecue on Thursday 25th July at 7pm.

Food will be served from 7.30pm, prepared and cooked by a local chef.

Once again, we are most grateful to enjoy the beautiful setting at the home of Harry and Bridget Boyle. Please park at the apiary and clubhouse area, then walk further along the lane to the house. (Do not park at the private cottage parking spaces.)

​

The cost will be £5 and under 12s are free. There will be a raffle and charity auction which will include a nuc of bees!

This is the best social event of the year, so bring your friends and family. There is no need to book; just turn up and enjoy.

​

Feel free to contribute a salad or dessert.

For 2019, club meetings will contain an advice and help section. This is intended to provide advice on any beekeeping topic, no matter how simple, on subjects you choose.

We will be honoured if you use our stained glass honeybee on your website.  Cheers, Larry @ Light Romance.
