Please have a look round our website. It is packed
with information which will help you become a beekeeper or, if you already are one,
help you become a better beekeeper.
I was appointed chairman at our last AGM in March and we re about to enter
another exciting chapter in our short history. Darlington Council have been very
supportive in assisting us establish a COMMUNITY APIARY at the Denes Park in the
centre of Darlington and we have now been given permission by the Darlington Planning
Department to open our new apiary on the site of the old bowling green at the Denes.
This will be an exciting and rewarding project and we very much hope that local
residents and young people in that area of darlington will get behind the project
and help us establish what should be an extremely useful resouce for the people of
Darlington. The first stage will be to work closely with Friends of the Earth and
work out a plan for developing the site and to turn it in to an attractive wild flower
meadow which can be enjoyed by all. Establishing hives of bees on the site will
further enhance the facilities. We hope to announce plans for putting on training
and information days soon. If you are interested in getting involved and perhaps
helping us with the planting please get in touch - details of our officers can be
found on the “OFFICERS” page of this website.
2014 looks as though it will be a great year for beekeeping and I wish everyone
