Welcome

To Warwickshire Beekeepers Association

We hope this page will start you on your journey to being a beekeeper. And if you are already a beekeeper we aim to provide you with help and guidance as you continue your beekeeping journey.

We are the umbrella County Association for 8 Branches: Birmingham, Coventry, Nuneaton & Atherstone, Rugby, Shipston-on-Stour, Solihull & District, Sutton Coldfield, and Warwick & Leamington. It is the Branches that members join; each branch has their own Committee and Training Apiary and run their own Introduction to Beekeeping Courses.

To find our more about us visit the About Us page.

Why become a beekeeper….

All bees, and honey bees in particular, are an important pollinator of many food crops

There are many products from the hive – who doesn’t like honey!

And beekeeping is such a fascinating activity.
