The Beekeepers Club Inc
The Beekeepers Club is based in the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne and supports beekeepers and beekeeping with training courses, information sharing and mentoring. We meet on the 3rd Thursday of every month at 7:30pm at our venue in Blackburn North. Regular beginners courses providing hands on experience are held at the club apiary.
Covid-19 advice for all members & visitors of the Beekeepers Club Inc.
Thursday, March 19th Meeting cancelled.
On the basis of advice from the premier’s briefing meeting held on Monday 16th March, 9am, the committee has decided to cancel the March meeting, the March apiary opening and the Pure Peninsula Social Trip.
The Beekeepers Club wants to make sure that we do all we can to take care of our members and visitors. We are putting measures in place to help our members and visitors feel comfortable, safe and well and the Committee would appreciate your support.
This is an interesting and challenging time to navigate how to best service the members of the club, amid virus fears. Advice on public activities and gatherings is changing as the situation evolves.
We have to consider the health of the members and visitors. Current advice is that public gatherings over 500 people are to be cancelled. This action is designed to avoid harm to the community, particularly for those people who are more vulnerable to this virus – our elderly and those with chronic illnesses. Given that 151 people attended our February meeting, the committee agreed that bringing a significant number of people close together in a confined space is not worth the risk to our members and visitors.
We are monitoring the changing situation and Federal and State Government advice.
Regularly wash your hands for at least 20 seconds, cough and sneeze into your elbow, and avoid touching your face.

We will keep you updated as things unfold and change.
What we must not forget in this time of uncertainty is to treat each other with some kindness.
