Welcome to the Jersey Bee Keepers Association website
Welcome to the new website of the "Jersey Bee Keepers Association" (hosted by the BBKA) This website contains information and frequently asked questions about bee keeping in Jersey.
Sadly only 21 members turned up for the AGM to hear the inspired Bob Hogge (outgoing President) outline his momentous plans for a purpose Bee Keeping Centre here in Jersey
for those who didn't attend, you will find that the
2016 Membership Form can be downloaded
from the link at the top right-hand corner of this page.
It should also be noted that due to a lack of support for the "JBKA 100 Club" it has had to change it's name (to a somewhat lower number..!) this in due course has been reflected in the amount paid out in winnings, so for the remaining ticket holders, if you receive a cheque from Gary (our Treasurer) for rather an odd amount, don't be surprised...!
The May Draw took place at the recent Council Meeting
and the winning numbers were as follows:-
1st = 2
2nd = 56
3rd = 20
We can now be contacted by emailing us at 'firstname.lastname@example.org
We also have Base Ball Caps, Tee-Shirts, Polo Shirts, and Hoodies in various colours for sale,
along with Mugs all with our new JBKA logo.
Remember, you don't actually have to be a member of the JBKA to buy any of this branded merchandise, but we'd prefer if you were...!
Please support your local bee keepers.

notice of this was given at the last meeting (17th April) these are important times for the future of
the JBKA so please attend.
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 "firstname.lastname@example.org
