May's Open Meeting 

Our next meeting is on Tuesday 30th May at the Wagon and Horses, Caythorpe, starting at 7.30pm, where the topic will be Preparing Exhibits for the Show Bench.  Providing guidance on show exhibits prior to the County and District Shows and improving standards.  Entering your honey (or wax or cake or photograph or beekeeping invention, or candle or if you absolutely must mead), can be fun and is a good way to meet other beekeepers. A map is available here.

We have a proposed list of meetings on our calendar page.  These may be subject to changes due to absence etc. please double check here a few days before.

We have lots going on at Sleaford and welcome all levels of Beekeeper to come along and get involved, or just come along and get to know more about bees and beekeeping in a social environment.
