Meetings 2009

YABeeP is primarily about providing peer support to like minded individuals, families and groups. Consequently we try to meet monthly in the Yatton area during the bee season (April to October). We also have the odd special meeting during the winter months and hold bee home building workshops at various dates throughout the year. In the new year we plan to hold a meeting especially designed for new folk wishing to start helping bees.

2010 Programme
Meetings allow us to:

  • Welcome new members to learn about our aims and principles and decide whether they wish join us,
  • Provide a meeting point for those already on board to network with each other to expand their own knowledge, ask questions and share new ideas and thoughts on helping bees,
  • Provide an opportunity to get hands on with bees (dependant on weather of course) and see into a working hive
  • Allow us to meet socially, perhaps have occasional BBQs or picnics, etc., after all life’s not all about bees.
If you wish to join one of these meetings please email to let us know how many to expect and for directions. We hope to hear from you.

In addition to the monthly meetings we will arrange hive building workshops as demand dictates. We have now held two of these which not only allowed members starting from scratch to complete their hives,
but all who took part claimed to have a most enjoyable day!
