Apiary meeting dates for our members are on the Apiary Page

May/June
Bath and West Show

Thursday 30th May to Saturday 1st June. Come along to the Bees and Honey Marquee. Wiltshire Beekeepers Association has an interactive stand where we will be able to answer questions about beekeeping. We will have an observation hive where you will be able to see a queen bee surrounded by a retinue of her daughters busily bringing in nectar. Our branch will be supplying 2 colonies of bees for the Bee Garden, where you can watch live demonstrations of beekeeping and ask questions. There will be honey from our bees for sale, some of it (we hope!) prize winning. We’ll only know that after judging of the bees and honey exhibits – no doubt they will be hotly contested, and with a really high number of entries across the board this year we’re hoping that Wiltshire will win the shield again. Come and say hello – we’d love to see you!

August

Saturday 17th August – Beekeeping Taster Day at the club’s apiary. The day gives people interested in beekeeping the opportunity to find out what’s involved, receive some basic information about honeybees and pollinators and, weather permitting, to look inside a hive. Beesuits will be available to borrow. For more information, or to book a place, please contact education-wwbka@outlook.com
