Summer Meetings are held at our Apiary in Highbury Park.  Association and members' hives undergo inspection by that well known pest of the bee, the beekeeper.

2.00pm every Saturday between June and August.
See the Highbury Apiary page for further information.

Apiary meetings will end in September 2019

Winter meetings (September to March) are lively and educational with a mixture of lectures and talks covering the basics for new beekeepers and other topics.  Non-members and visitors are very welcome to attend.  I promise we are a very friendly and welcoming bunch.  Tea and biscuits to follow, sometimes there may be cake.

Note:  From September 2019 we will be meeting at a new venue, NOT at DEH, Bournville.
