NORWICH — Local beekeeping group Bullthistle Beekeepers will begin holding their monthly meetings once again, starting next Thursday, June 17.
The group has been around for several years, and the meetings are a place for beekeepers and those interested in the hobby to get together and share information, advice, and good company. Thursday's meeting will be the first since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
"We have a meet and greet at 6 [p.m.], so everybody comes and just talks about, you know, mingles around and talks about their bees and stuff. And then at 7 [p.m.] we try to have a meeting," said Candy Boise, 15-year beekeeper and proprietor of Boise's Bees.
Next week’s meeting will be held at Hidden Springs Brewhouse, she said.
"We used to hold them at Taylor's Country House, but then after the pandemic we couldn't meet in such a small area, so that's when we moved to Hidden Springs," Boise explained.
The meetings are open to the public, and all are welcome to attend, even if you have no beekeeping experience, according to Boise.
