Welcome to the Durham Beekeepers UK website. We’re a friendly bunch of honey bee enthusiasts who meet at 7pm on the last Wednesday of almost every month. We’ll meet for the last time at Finchale College, Durham, UK in February 2017, and from then on at Houghall College, Durham, UK, for bee related conversation and information.
Each month a different speaker comes to the meeting to share information and expertise, and there is always a cup of tea on the go at the end of the evening. Beginners are welcome – you don’t even have to have your own bees yet, just come along and find out more, although you will have to join the association if you want to keep coming to the meetings. And the courses run by the association are excellent – whether you want to start from scratch as a beginner, or you are ready to take the next steps into Intermediate Beekeeping. See the ‘About’ section for more details.
It costs £25 to join the association. Due to the change in accommodation and moving the apiary there’s a chance the Beginners’ Course won’t run this year, but check back on the website for further information in case this changes. An Intermediate Course should be running – see ‘About’ section for details.
