Outdoor Meetings
The first of our 2015 'drop-in' sessions had to be cancelled because it was too wet and cold to open the hives. Details of the next session will be posted here as soon as it has been arranged. Meanwhile, to see what other activities the Association is planning, don't forget to keep an eye of the Events page of this website.
