Programme 2022

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we are still not meeting face-to-face as usual. Instead, monthly meetings take place ‘on-line’. In spite of and because of COVID-19, a whole world - literally - of beekeeping has opened up to us through on-line systems like Zoom. Lorraine, our secretary, will send out a link to these meetings in due course.

We will let you know as soon as possible when we will return to normal meetings.

Next FBKA monthly meeting:

Our monthly FBKA meeting is on Thursday 26 May 2022 at 8pm at at Fermanagh House Broadmeadow Place,
Enniskillen, Co Fermanagh, BT74 7HR with Zoom access also for those wanting to join remotely. Mark Wallace will be giving a presentation on “Beginning a nuc in spring and nurturing it to get honey in summer”. NB
This is part 1 of a 2 part presentation.
