During the summer most of PBKA’s meetings are held at the Association Training Apiary at Acorn Bank (the National Trust Property at Temple Sowerby just outside Penrith). These meetings give members opportunities to learn more about beekeeping issues and exchange knowledge and news. Occasionally visits are made to members’ hives.
Local events often provide PBKA with opportunities to raise the general public’s awareness about bees and promote beekeeping. The dates of these are usually included in our winter/ summer programmes and members are invited to provide support by attending them .
Training programmes for experienced and beginner beekeepers take place during the spring and the summer. Dates are shown on the calendar and current programme, but further information can be found at EDUCATION.
A calendar of forthcoming events can be found below. Please check this regularly as arrangements can be changed or added at short notice.
