Our aim is to encourage, improve and advance beekeeping through membership of our group. Advantages of membership include: • Talks by invited speakers on a wide range of beekeeping topics • Workshops e.g. checking for Nosema apis and N.ceranae • Association apiary meetings • Monthly newsletters • Third party and product liability insurance • Insurance against loss form bee diseases • Equipment hire • Association library • Discounted subscriptions for Beekeepers Quarterly and Bee Craft • Theoretical and practical course for beginners
Possibly the most important benefit is the opportunity to exchange views and learn from the experience of other beekeepers. Full Membership :- includes British Beekeepers Association capitation fee, giving benefit of BBKA membership and third party insurance; and £2 Bee Disease Insurance for 3 hives (additional payment required for more than 3 hives). Full members are encouraged to register with The National Bee Unit on BeeBase www.nationalbeeunit.com
Associate Membership :- for beginners without bees and those embarking on the Beginner's Course; beekeepers who are a full member of another beekeeping association; spouse/partner of full member; retired beekeepers; anyone who wishes to support beekeeping.
