We hold two meetings per month during the winter, the main winter meetings and also the novices group. Everyone is welcome to attend both meetings if they wish but the Novices Meetings are primarily aimed at those who have kept bees for less than three years and concentrating on basic beekeeping skills and learning from each other’s experience. See the Calendar for dates and topics for this year.
The Main Winter Meetings are held on a Tuesday Passmore Edwards Hall in Hayle (13-15 Hayle Terrace. Hayle, TR27 4BU). The format is usually a presentation, previous examples include: making mead, spring swarm management, and American Foul Brood. The full library will be open and refreshments and a raffle will be available.
The meeting for Novices are held on a Tuesday at St. Piran’s Hall in Goldsithney (South Road, Goldsithney, TR20 9LE). Each meeting covers a certain topic followed by an opportunity to ask more experienced beekeepers questions. The mini library will be available as will refreshments and a raffle.
