We are an active and friendly club who always welcome new members. The club supports a variety of beekeeping methods, ranging from honey production to keeping bees for the joy of seeing them.
We host an array of different meetings throughout the year, from Apiary visits, coffee mornings and general club get-togethers where there is always tea and cake. Our membership is currently spread across the Sedbergh, Bentham, Settle and surrounding areas.

The Month of February
A few things to do and check in the month of February. Preparing your equipment, making sure that it's all clean and ready for the year ahead. Have frames ready made, and clean any old frames. Check all equipment is in good working order and repair what needs repairing. Check how much stores the bees have as even though they may have gotten through the winter they still might starve so checking stores is a must. Also observe the hive on a nice sunny day and see if there are bees flying in and out of the hive, if there is very little activity it may be time to just lift the roof and have a quick look to see if there is any inside activity.
