Monthly meetings are held on the 2nd Sunday of every month from 9.45am-midday. No meetings held at Covid levels 3 or 4. Starting at 9.45am with a cup of tea/coffee/milo and chat amongst members (a great opportunity to get or give advice), the monthly discussion and/or demonstration (with Q&As) starts at 10am. Then (optional) we head into our apiary for a practical session (weather permitting). To reduce the risk of spreading disease, please do not bring any used beekeeping equipment except bee suits to club meetings.
