Is beekeeping for you?  May we help you make an informed decision about the part you could play in sustaining our bee population?


North Cheshire Beekeepers are holding an evening get together to give you an overview of the essentials of beekeeping and help you make this important decision. Our team of established beekeepers, who act as trainers or mentors, will be present to answer your questions.  You will also meet members who have recently completed their initial training or who have had bees for a year or so.  You will probably find their perspectives on the value of training and the commitment involved particularly helpful.


The New Starters Evening is being held on Thursday, 20th August 2020 at the Frodsham Community Centre, Fluin Lane, Frodsham, WA6 7QN.  

Registration at 7.15pm for 7.30pm start.


Agenda:

Welcome by Chairman

10 minute film on bees

Short presentations on:

- safety and equipment essentials

- siting your apiary

- investing in beekeeping – time, training & equipment

Meet and question the beekeepers, new starters and trainers


Tea/coffee and biscuits will be provided.  We expect the get together to finish at about 9.30pm.


Should you be unable to attend this event, there are other opportunities for you to come to one of our other regular monthly meetings.
