Group meetings are on the second Tuesday of each month from 7 – 9pm at Newcastle Dog and Cat Shelter in Longbenton, NE12 8EH. You can view directions from your postcode using the map on the contact page. Our meetings normally include a guest speaker.
Seasonal bee inspector Brian Murphy will be speaking on the subject of Asian Hornets.
This session will be a basic introduction to honey bees and beekeeping. It is intended to help people decide if they would like to take a comprehensive beginners course and look to start keeping bees.
We run a separate full beginners course over two weekends in April.
In summer we get many questions from the public about bees and other insects.Swarm advice on the BBKA website Download our Swarm Information leaflet
