Next Club meeting 


Wednesday 20th March at 7pm

in the Arts & Cultural Centre, Limavady


Please note the change of day to Wednesday to allow us to host guest speaker, Mike Palmer, from Vermont, USA. 















Mike has become one of the big names in world beekeeping and some of you will be familiar with his Youtube channel. His visit to RVBKA has been kindly organised by our friends at the INIB.



To help fund his visit we suggest a voluntary £5 donation from members and compulsory £8 from non-members.


Outstanding subscriptions can be paid to the Treasurer, Mark Carton, by calling at his new shop in Limavady;  (Mark Carton Flowers, 20 Newton Square, Limavady). Mark also stocks a range of beekeeping equipment, so it's well worth calling in for a look

For 2019, club meetings will contain an advice and help section. This is intended to provide advice on any beekeeping topic, no matter how simple, on subjects you choose.

The stained glass image used as our logo is from a Canadian Stained glass company called Light Romance, onto which has been laid the RVBKA title.         In March '08 their Director wrote: Hi Alan. We will be honoured if you use our stained glass honeybee on your website.  Cheers, Larry @ Light Romance.
