Our outdoor meetings are held for the benefit of Association members who are fully aware of and accept the risks involved. Potential beekeepers wishing to attend should contact the Secretary for advice and to be teamed with an experienced member. Clean protective clothing is required for all outdoor meetings, please ask for advice, the Group can provide some items. This is a precaution against the spread of varroa and disease from one apiary to another.
