We are keen to support the construction and conservation of high quality townscape and buildings from every era and have a lively interest in the future development of our town and the issues which confront it in the 21st century ... We hold regular lectures, discussions and social events throughout the winter months.'

In spring and summer the meetings tend to be at apiaries, which gives members a chance to handle bees and beehives ... Beekeeping is essentially a practical craft so it is easier to learn by doing it.  You need the company of experienced friends, and the Divisions provide this.  You never stop learning about beekeeping.'
