    Swarms

    Swarms are, for some beekeepers, the highlight of the beekeeping year.

Winter Programme

The Oswestrian hosted the first of our Winter Meetings which was a presentation by Mark Newman, Vice Chairman of Shropshire Beekeepers Association, on the Asian Hornet. Mark volunteered to assist Beekeepers in Jersey last September, and shared his experience of dealing with the Asian Hornet. He learnt a great deal from his trip to assist in tracing Asian Hornet nests and removing them. More information can be found by clicking on the News tab above.

Sadly, we shall no longer be using The Oswestrian as a venue as it is due to close in December. Your Committee is currently searching for an alternative location for our Winter Meetings. Check back here, or with our Facebook page, for details of alternative arrangements nearer the time.

 

Annual Dinner

It was lovely to see so many of our members turn out on the 10thNovember for our Annual Dinner. The 2018 Dinner was held at the Sweeney Hall Hotel, the turn out was the best I have seen for years and I think it’s fair to say a good time was had by all. It is heartening when you have such an excellent response given the time and effort that goes into organise events such as these, so thank you to everyone who attended.

 

OBKA

Oswestry Beekeepers’ Association meet throughout the year to bring together Oswestry’s Beekeepers and bee enthusiasts. During the summer months we meet at a different location each time with a different expert guest speaker. During the winter we invite a guest speaker to join us for a talk on a whole range of subjects relating to bees and honey. See our Events page for more information.
