The ADBKA Annual General Meeting will be held on Sunday, 24 March, at Kinellar Hall. Any member wishing to make a nomination for the committee should notify the secretary at least a week before the AGM, having first obtained consent from the person concerned for their name to go forward.
This will be preceded by a talk on Scottish bumble and solitary bees by Murdo MacDonald, starting at 2pm.
