Aims and Objectives
The Association exists to promote good beekeeping. One of our aims is to encourage new people into this fascinating craft and assist them by:

  • Providing contact with experienced beekeepers who can help newcomers
  • Running introductory courses at Association apiaries
  • Supporting and mentoring new members through their first year
  • Advising on the purchase of equipment and supplies
  • Providing a local association as a focal point for members
  • Educating members by holding weekly apiary meetings in the summer and monthly talks by experts in the winter.
