During the Summer months we visit several of our members apiaries with a view to teaching beginners a great deal about how to encourage good healthy bees, keeping hold of their bees, and, as a result of good beekeeping, gain a reasonable crop of honey.  This year we will also include a bee safari, where several sites will be visited and we will be joined by our Regional Bee Inspector, Jo Schup.  These meetings are always enjoyable, sociable and most importantly, very informative for beekeepers at all levels. We almost always end our meetings with a very enjoyable bee tea.
