Beekeeping Advice

Next Club meeting 


Thursday 14th February at 7pm 

in the Arts & Cultural Centre, Limavady 


As well as discussions on beekeeping activities, there will be an update about Mike Palmer’s visit  to our March meeting. Mike is one of the world's best-known beekeepers, so we are very excited that he has chosen RVBKA to host his lecture.  




There will be another opportunity to pay any outstanding subscriptions. They can also be paid to the Treasurer, Mark Carton, by calling at his new shop in Limavady;  (Mark Carton Flowers, 20 Newton Square, Limavady). Mark also stocks a range of beekeeping equipment, so it's well worth calling in for a look
