BeeSoc is the place to bee if you're a fan of our fuzzy little pollinator friends! You need no particular knowledge or beekeeping experience to join- just a love for bees!
We work closely with local beekeepers to maintain our own hives which we regularly take members to view, showing them how to perfom basic checks (such as looking for chalkbrood and varroa mites).
We show films, documetaries, have candle-making workshops and even try to produce our own honey! We also enjoy relaxing crafts and have made bee badges, bee bead decorations and have had bee drawing sessions.
This year we are also aiming to raise money for the Bumblebee Conservation Trust and help raise awareness amongst both students and the local community on issues concerning our pollinators.
There are plenty of opportunities to get involved: feel free to come along to our monthly "Bees and Teas" sessions for some tea, biscuits and a chat about bees! Or see our facebook page or join our facebook group for more information!
