MEETINGS

Take place at the OAK LEAF SPORTS CENTRE and Moore Lane Eco-Centre in Newton Aycliffe

We are an informal group and meet regularly to talk about matters to do with bees in a friendly and relaxed environment.  We invite interesting and thought-provoking speakers occasionally but our focus is on creating a sociable and friendly atmosphere when members can discuss beekeeping problems and seek solutions.

All are very welcome.
