Committee Posts

Hello Beekeepers!

We are still operating without a secretary after the AGM in November, and this will affect how we offer you the members activities and other things such as membership.

We NEED a secretary who can assist the other members of the committee with the running of your Beekeeping branch, without a secretary the branch does not function well as we cannot keep you informed properly.


If you would like to help out please get in touch with the Chairman David Painter. – WebBee

Christmas Greetings

Hello Beekeepers!

We warmly wish you and your bees a Happy Christmas, and hope you have a good winter with your bees

Don’t forget to Feed them and treat for Varroa, as the mild weather will be allowing the mites to survive with your bees.

Best Wishes

Tavistock Beekeepers Committee

AGM update

Hello Beekeepers!

You will be pleased to note we had a successful AGM, and a good discussion was had by the attending members; again it would have been good to see more of you at the meeting.

The full minutes you should have received already, and you will note we currently have no Club Secretary.

We desperately need someone to take on this vital communication role within the group and would request you consider supporting the committee by offering to volunteer.

Your Branch needs a secretary to function properly.

Please get in touch with Tavistock Beekeepers at if you can help.
