Blagdon, Clevedon & District branch 60th Birthday Lecture

Keith Delaplane, Professor of Entomology, Georgia University, USA will give a lecture 'Social Insects - Fact or Fiction?' to celebrate the Jubilee year of this branch.

To celebrate our Jubilee Year we are very fortunate to have been offered a lecture by a celebrated visiting Professor. Keith Delaplane, Professor of Entomology at Georgia University in the USA, has kindly agreed to give us a special talk. Professor Delaplane is currently on a six-month sabbatical in the UK where he is working with the NBU in York. His lecture will be based on his super-organism research and will be at a level that will appeal to all abilities of beekeeper.

On this singular occasion, BCD Branch is opening the lecture to all beekeepers who wish to attend. The lecture will be held on Friday 28 September at Shipham Village Hall. The cost will be only £6 per person.  Starting at 7.15 pm this charge includes a welcoming glass of wine, tea, coffee or soft drink and nibbles.  The lecture itself will commence at 8 o’c sharp and will be followed afterwards by a Q & A session with Professor Delaplane. 

It will also include a slice of our 60th birthday cake!
