Wadebridge Beekeeping Group was founded in 1948 and is part of the Cornwall Beekeepers Association. We welcome anyone with an interest in beekeeping to come to our summer meetings at the group’s teaching apiary on the outskirts of Wadebridge to learn what happens in a hive and have hands-on experience of handling bees.
The demonstrations are led by the Apiary Manager, Chris Shirley. Protective clothing is available if it is needed but please phone Chris beforehand on 07854 080509.
During the winter when no practical beekeeping is possible, the group holds meetings at Porteath Bee Centre near St. Minver each month, usually on the fourth Wednesday, when guest speakers give talks on various beekeeping subjects. The meeting in February is the group’s AGM and Honey Show. Membership of the group is free but a small donation is appreciated for funds. A library is held at Porteath Bee Centre and the books can be borrowed by members.
For more information or for details on joining the Wadebridge Group, please contact the group secretary Gillian Searle, firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling 01208 74878.
