Thread: association near city of St. Andrews

    Default association near city of St. Andrews

    Hello from Texas, United States. Looking to meet bee folks during vacation closeby St. Andrews in July 2015.
    It'll be difficult to set up a calendar for a year away but maybe I'll get lucky to go to a honeybee club meeting or seminar or apiary during that time. I'm going to the 2015 British Open and would like to mix bees with golf.
    Thx for your help.

    Howday Gary!

    The Fife Beekeepers Association has several members around St Andrews and I'm sure that you'll find them welcoming. Janice herself (the secretary) lives close to St Andrews. Last I heard she was having computer trouble, so I'll send you another possible contact by private message.

    Dang! I spelled Howdy wrong ...

    Fife has its top-bar enthusiasts too. The clash of cultures between the guy with the golf attire and the wide-brimmed cowboy hat, and the local top-bar folk with their low footprint living would be worth watching!

    There's a chance that your visit might coincide with one of their apiary visits. I'm sure someone would be willing to take you along.
