Carrick / Kerrier

About Carrick / Kerrier Group

Our group covers the central area of Cornwall extending down to the west, with members coming from as far as The Lizard. We have an emphasis on all practical aspects of beekeeping with a good mixture of experienced and novice bee keepers from all backgrounds and ages. We welcome and encourage new members at all levels of experience to join us.

Our indoor meetings are now being held on the third Thursday of each month
throughout autumn, winter and spring at Crofthandy Village Hall, near St Day, at 7pm (please note we have changed the day and venue for our meetings going forward from summer 2023). The meetings are a mixture of informal and practical sessions with questions and answers and specialist guest speakers. We also hold an annual informal Honey Show where members of all levels are encouraged to enter a range of bee related products in an environment of constructive criticism – good practice before going on to more competitive events. We have an extensive library of books, magazines and course materials and these are brought along to meetings for browsing and borrowing. Members can also borrow equipment such as steam cleaners, wax extractors and honey extractors.

In 2022 we were able to realise the long held ambition of setting up the Len Andrew Teaching Apiary near Chacewater and can now offer practical, hands on sessions during the beekeeping season in a beautiful rural setting.
