Bishops Stortford news by Paul Cooper

Some serious woodpecker defence. Picture by Jane Moseley.The Bishops Stortford AGM will take place on Wednesday 17th February at 19:30 at Little Acorns, 10 Redricks Lane, Sawbridgeworth, CM21 0RL.

Our guest speaker is Robin Dartington who will be talking about his highly successful initiative called BuzzWorks in Hitchin. He is also the person behind the Dartington hive and the design of the Beehaus from Omlet. Come along and be inspired.

Also, the Bishops Stortford group decided that rather than running a course (and all of the hard work and commitment that requires) we would give a talk giving an introduction to beekeeping. Anyone that is interesting in taking up beekeeping can then attend our regular apiary meeting and learn hands-on from the 'experts'.

Alan Lewis has very kindly organised the talk which has been advertised locally:


Due to the great interest shown in beekeeping I propose to give an introductory talk on Bee Keeping, outlining the work, enjoyment, interest and general requirements. There will be a demonstration of the equipment. After the talk and demonstration there will be a break for tea and I will answer any questions.

Doors will open at 7 pm on Friday the 19th of February at Markwell Pavillion, Castle Gardens, Bishop’s Stortford, CM23 2EL.

There will be a token charge to cover the cost of the hall. The meeting will close at 10pm

Speaker A. G. Lewis (07749262144)
