'In 1885 Glastonbury solicitor, J. G. L. Bulleid, was mayor for the sixth time and he proposed that a museum should be inaugurated during his year of office. He was an energetic Victorian with immense knowledge of the town and its past ... The Glastonbury Antiquarian Society was formed: to control the museum; to enjoy excursions, lectures & entertainments; to publish papers on historical and other matters of local interest ... But the course of the Society was changed in 1892, when Arthur Bulleid, son of J. G. L., discovered the remains of the Iron Age Lake Village ... Members (individual and institutional) may attend all of the Society’s lectures and field visits and may have access to the Lake Village exhibition.'

'We provide training, promote best practice and offer advice, support and education to beekeepers and the public. Over the years our members have made – and continue to make - an impressive contribution to British beekeeping at both national and county level ... The Somerset Beekeepers Association is divided into twelve divisions, each corresponding to a different area of the county. Members can join any division, and also be members of more than one division. Members also don't have to live in Somerset, for example some members are from neighbouring counties such as Dorset or Devon ... The SBKA and each division organise lectures, usually in the "off-season" (i.e. autumn and winter, and into early spring) for beekeeping. Most divisional lectures are open to members of other divisions, and if in doubt just ask! Lectures are a great way to learn more about beekeeping and bees, and to help get you ready and excited for the next season.'
