Meetings and Events
At our monthly meetings members have the opportunity to discuss a variety of beekeeping issues and ideas. We try to include a presentation spot focusing on key topics such as swarm control, queen rearing and varroa, or talks/demonstrations from guest speakers.
Meetings are held on the second Thursday of the month at 7.30pm in the Community Room at Southport Fire Station, PR9 0LH. There are four flights of stairs up to the room, but a lift is available. There is a vending machine and toilets situated nearby on the same floor. Entry to the fire station is opposite Cathay Garden Chinese restaurant. As we have to sign in there will be someone manning the door so please try to be on time if possible.
