Come See The Bees

In conjunction with the Heritage Festival, 2017 our club is opening its’ doors to the wider community with an open day. This is a great opportunity for everyone to visit the Bee Gardens at Sutherland and find out about the bees in our community.

The day will include wearing our protective clothing and inspecting a hive in operation, we even have clothing for children. The day will feature Informative talks on beekeeping, the life of a worker bee and native bees, Honey tastings and sales provided by club members, books on beekeeping along with wax products.

We will also host a BBQ Sausage Sizzle with Cold Drinks for Sale. Raffles with prizes including a beekeeping course for beginners
