Newent Beekeepers' Association
The Newent Bee Keepers Association is a Branch of the Gloucestershire Bee Keepers Association, which is affiliated to the British Bee Keepers Association. They all exist to promote and further the craft of beekeeping.
Members meet to increase their understanding of bee keeping, discuss difficulties and current developments and share in their successes as well as disappointments. We have regular meetings with visiting speakers and talks by our own members. We will also run a training course for beginners which will start with a theory course in February 2016 and will be followed by practical sessions in the Spring. Members also give advice to the public on beekeeping matters.
