Honey Show 2016

Now's the time to be thinking about your entries for

the JBKA Honey Show, taking place this year in conjunction with the Cider Festival

at Hamptonne on 8th/9th October.

with the Annual Dinner & Prize Giving on the evening of Saturday 8th October

at Lacerta, Les Ormes, St Brelade.


However, please note the following, regarding attendance at recent events...

Sunday 18th September...only 11 members turned up

Friday 23rd September...only 9 members turned up

these events were organised for you, the general members,

but most of those that attended these events were officers of the association.

So those who stood up at the AGM and complained about a lack of events please take note,

and ask yourself this question "how many JBKA events have I attended this year"..?


so why not attend the Annual Dinner & Prize Giving

so far only 12 people have returned their menu choices and payment  to the Secretary..!


For further information email


If any JBKA member is prepared to provide a location for an apiary visit please advise the Secretary


Bee Classes

The Jersey Beekeepers Association runs one set of 5 theory classes in early spring

each year before active beekeeping usually starts.  Time, weather and other conditions permitting,

we also try to hold at least one Practical, hands-on (gloved of course) session at an

apiary or two in the summer and give advice to those fortunate enough to have acquired  bees.  

We can also advise on mentors to call for help when the bees don't behave as

they're "supposed" to - after all, they do not read all the books about beekeeping!!!


Please contact Judy Collins (JBKA Education Officer) to add your name to the list for any future classes and for any queries... email "
