Visit the Apiary

Association Apiary

We encourage all our members to come to the Apiary for the practical teaching sessions which take place on Sunday mornings from 10.30 til noon, from May 12th to September 8th, including Bank Holiday weekends.

All visitors must come suitably dressed. This means wearing a long-sleeved shirt or top, a pair of sturdy trousers, not leggings. Ideally, footwear should be wellingtons or similar. If you do not possess such footwear, then a sturdy pair of shoes and thick socks that are long enough to tuck your trouser bottoms into them.

If you have a sting allergy we would strongly advise you to avoid coming to the apiary.


IMPORTANT
We are unable to show you the bees at the Association Apiary if you have a known allergy to bee stings.
