Date & time



Sun 22nd July 2018

2.30 pm

Apiary meeting and inspection.

 Please bring your bee suits and veils but note that the branch has adopted a policy of 'clean gloves'. This means that all members should wear clean gloves and therefore leather gloves (unless they are new and reserved for the branch apiary) will not be allowed. Disposable gloves will be provided.

There is a car park at the apiary but the only driveable access to the apiary site is from the main entrance to Dunsland Park on the Bickford Arms to Bradford Road. The public car park is at this entrance but the gate to the park will be unlocked for us to drive through. Please close the gate after driving through it.

The postcode of the nearest house to the car park is EX22 7AA.

If you are interested in beekeeping but not a member, you are welcome to join us to take a look but please contact the apiary manager below so that we can brief you and we know to expect you.

For further details contact the apiary manager
