Swansea & District Beekeepers Social Evening & Talk – Tuesday 10th May

Swansea & District Beekeepers’ Society have kindly invited PBKA members to an evening talk and discussion ‘hosted’ by Robert Jones and entitled  “Locally adapted bees, Native bees or Gower bees” on Tuesday 10th May.

If you don’t know Rob he has been beekeeping ‘for a hundred years’ and is a very experienced beekeeper. Rob is passionate about bees and beekeeping and always has something interesting to say.

The venue will be the Main Bar of the Gowerton Con Club – this is the room immediately in front of you as you come through the main door. The talk will start at 7.30 pm and you are therefore asked to arrive 15 -20 minutes before to ensure that any bar orders are satisfied before the talk starts. For those of you that have not been to the Gowerton Con Club before it is located on the corner of  Sterry Road and Church Street, Gowerton with the entrance to the building being in Church Street.

Everyone is very welcome.

For further details please contact: Julian Caruana, Hon. Secretary, Swansea & District Beekeepers’ Society
