Bromley branch programme including apiary meetings, evening lectures and national events.
Events and Lectures
Tuesday 3rd December 2013 @ 7.30pm 'More than Honey' Film Night.
This is a brilliant film that came out earlier year with amazing close ups with incredible pictures of bees in the hive and on the wing, with coverage of a virgin queen being mated. I saw it in it's original languages German/ Swiss but this version is better as it is narrated by the famous actor John Hurt. Bob assures me that we will have no problem with copyright as we are having a private showing within our club.
Tuesday 21st January 2014 @ 7.30pm Dr Nikki Gammans 'The Short Hair Bumblebee Project'.
Tuesday 18th February 2014 @ 7.30pm Dr Stephan Wolf.
