The Teaching Apiary sessions on Saturdays are available strictly through advance bookings only. Please contact the SCBKA membership and education secretary (email@example.com) for further information on availability and booking a place.
A taster session for non members on Saturday 3rd July 2022 is now available for booking via the same email address.
As bee keeping equipment is now widely available via online ordering, and next day delivery is possible, the decision has been taken to discontinue the supply and sale of stock items. These are therefore no longer available at the apiary.
Bees will soon be available for sale to SCDBKA members at reasonable rates. Again, please make contact via the firstname.lastname@example.org email address. We would like to remind members that caution should be exercised in purchasing bees from commercial suppliers as the provenance may not be known.
We would ask that events are not advertised via any social media platform without discussion with the membership and education secretary. We'd like ensure that people arriving without a booking are not disappointed, and numbers still need to be managed.
