Programme 2020

Unfortunately, so many of the opportunities we would normally have to meet over the summer months were cancelled this year, including chiefly our BBQ and Honey Show.  It has been a challenging year for bees and beekeepers. 

Due to COVID-19 restrictions and anxieties, we will not be meeting as usual for the autumn. Instead, for the foreseeable future, our monthly meetings will take place ‘on-line’. So, if you are unfamiliar with on-line meeting systems - we will be using Zoom - please give it a go.  In spite of and because of COVID-19, a whole world - literally - of beekeeping has opened up to us through on-line systems. 

Here is the programme for the next 2 months:

  • Thursday, 29th October at 7.30 pm - Prof Thomas Seeley (Cornell University, USA) will be presenting a lecture to us entitled "Darwinian Beekeeping".

  • Thursday, 26th November at 7.30 pm - Thomas McCaffrey - The FBKA Queen Rearing Project 2020


Lorraine, our secretary, will send out a link to the October meeting in due course.
