Our monthly meetings for autumn/winter are held on the second Tuesday of each month from September through to March, at 8.15pm at the Millennium Hall, Cellan. Directions are here.
We have a programme of talks and presentations for the meetings – topics covered by speakers in recent seasons included disease recognition, methods of swarm control, queen rearing, making up nucleus hives, soap making, use of pollen in forensics and research into the foraging preferences of bees.
And, of course, every meeting is an opportunity to have a chat over tea and biscuits about bees, beekeepers and how there are a myriad of different answers to every beekeeping question!
Tea and biscuits are available at the nominal cost of £1.00 per head.
From April onwards our Apiary Manager and his team attend the Association apiary every Sunday afternoon at 2:00 p.m. and these sessions are open to all members to attend. Assistance with the various tasks involved in keeping the apiary running smoothly is always welcomed!
Our December meeting consists of live entertainment, a seasonal quiz, a raffle and seasonal food and drinks. A chance for us all to relax and toast the end of what we always hope will be another successful beekeeping year, and lift a glass to future success too.
