South Hampshire Beekeepers Spring Convention

We are hosting the Hampshire Spring Convention this year.  It is happening on Saturday 17th March at the Meon Hall, Meonstoke, SO32 3NP.

Coffee will be available from 9:30. The programme starts at 10:00 with a talk from Dr Gerry Brierly, who will be telling us about Medicinal Apitherapy. After that we will be hearing from Margaret Murdin about the different types of queen cells, how they arise and how to recognise them.

Lunch is followed by four workshops, which all delegates can attend. This year the focus is on swarming but there will also be a workshop on making mead and gardening for bees.

Tickets will be available at the meeting in February and are £15 in advance or £20 on the day. The price includes a light lunch and refreshments throughout the day.

If you are not able to come to the February meeting and would like tickets, please contact Jean at

Hope to see you there!
