Monthly Meetings

We meet on the third Saturday of the month at the Edith Banks Memorial Hall in Northop.

Most meetings consist of a talk or discussion with a speaker followed by beekeeping chat with a drink and cake. If the weather is good enough we visit the association hives that are on the college site. So please bring along your wellies so you can come too.
