Come meet us
We meet once a month on the first Monday at the New Moston Club on Parkfield Road North. This is in New Moston Manchester and the postcode is M40 3RQ.
We meet from 8pm and it is a quite informal chat evening. We do support new beekeepers with training at these evenings though. In summer we will offer apiary training to our members.

If you would like to find out more about beekeeping and you live in Oldham, Tameside or Manchester then please come to one of our evening meetings or get in touch
