Gregynog Trip @ Gregynog Hall
Aug 16 – Aug 17 all-day

After Alan and Anna’s recent trip to Gregynog Hall they thought it would be a good spot for an ABKA visit, so let’s do it!

The Montgomery beekeepers are keen to show us their apiary also. The date is Friday  17th August, we would meet there using your own transport, but if you need a lift please contact me .

We need to have an idea of numbers for the apiary site, so please, if you would like to go inform me of numbers.

The website is http://www.gregynog.org

There is a £2.50 car park fee. The website also says that there is a £3 admission fee, but there wasn’t when Alan and Anna visited last week.

There is a good cafe and walks.

The apiary is run by Montgomery Beekeepers… so it looks good.
