Stockport Beekeepers
Stockport Beekeepers
Beekeepers love to talk about bees and the branch attend many events to share their hobby with the public and sell the products of their hives. We often take an observation hive with live bees and people love to find the queen bee. The branch is headed by a committee but many other branch members give their time and effort to fill a busy year learning about, teaching about and tending to the bees.

It is our great sadness to announce that Don Ryan who was our Chairman and who had recently stepped down due to ill health, passed away on 6th June at Stepping Hill Hospital.

Brian Gee who was the Vice Chairman has now stepped into role of Chairman and we wish him every success.

Linda Towse has stepped down from her role as secretary and programme secretary.

All enquiries should now be directed to Brian Gee telephone 01457 867641 or
