Meetings are held on the first Thursday of every month at Bradwall village hall (see Find Us)
The start time for indoor meetings is 7:15pm for 7:30pm but apiary meetings start at the earlier time of 6:30pm – please bring protective clothing (i.e. veil & ankle protection or wellies etc.) for these.
At apiary meetings there are demonstrations for experienced beekeepers, but also a beginners’ corner doing more basic techniques.
For a full view of the Cheshire beekeeping association events, please consult the Cheshire-BKA website
