The shop manager is Cliff McGaughey. The address is "The Skep", The Bastion, Portsmouth.

Please note, that for the winter period (October to March) the shop will not be routinely opened, but goods can be obtained by contacting Cliff as below.
No money is ever left in the shop and the premisis are alarmed.

The shop will be opening every Saturday from 1st April until end of September between 10.00 and 11.00 a.m.  There are good supplies of wax, jars etc. etc.  so please do make use of this Club facility. The shop is for the benefit of all members, hopefully saving them long journeys to other suppliers or having to pay postage (as well as money on your purchases). Every effort will be made to keep prices as low as possible by making bulk purchases, so it’s up to you to let us know your requirements. At present the stock of some items is limited, but we do have plenty of frames and foundation in anticipation of the spring honey flow. So, the success of this venture is really up to you – your patronage is all that is needed, so I look forward to your orders.
