Local Society: Ellesmere Port

'The aims of the Cheshire Beekeepers’ Association are to promote and further the craft of bee keeping. We do this through meetings, apiary events and educational courses ... We organise a full programme of indoor and outdoor meetings throughout the year.'

'The Society was founded in 1982 when cottage garden plants were becoming "unfashionable". Those starting the Society wanted to protect this vanishing planting style. They were concerned that, in the move to easily maintained gardens, hard landscaping was becoming more important than the plants ... The Society has around 35 regional groups, some with as few as seven members and some with over 200. Most groups meet monthly and have talks in winter and visits to gardens and plant sales in spring and summer.'
