Open Apiary Visit @ Sally Buckley
Jun 29 @ 13:30 – 15:30

Directions: Sally’s house is located down a narrow lane, just off A6 . It is the first turning on the left after Scalesceugh Hall if you are travelling north towards Carlisle. Parking and turning space is extremely limited.
PBKA has permission to use the car park at Court Thorn Surgery , Low Hesket, CA4 OHP :
To minimise the number of cars driving to the house, we will meet in the Court Thorn Surgery car park at 1.30. where we will arrange to share cars and travel together to Sally’s house.
Go to the patient’s car park at the rear of the surgery buildings i.e. do not park in the staff car park which is just inside the entrance.
To make sure that no-one is left behind, please contact Sally beforehand to let her know that you intend to come to this meeting.
