“We hope to build on this, and, with the great success we have also experienced in the first year of our queen rearing group project, run in association with Belfast and Dromore Beekeeper’s Associations, we have nearly recovered from the significant bee losses experienced by beekeepers following the poor season in 2012.
Also, there will be a presentation from Sally King, who will be continuing to promote the 2014 ULSTER BEEKEEPER’S ASSOCIATION ANNUAL CONFERENCE – the 75th anniversary event, which, following last year’s event, is promising to be a great occasion, with a number of traders keen to have a presence and a programme of speakers to the benefit of bees and beekeeping in the our world.
“Subsequent meetings will take place on the fourth Wednesday of each month until May, with a lively programme of guest speakers and activities touching the subject of bees and beekeeping , and visitors are always welcome.”
