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 also ran a training course for beginners which started with a theory course in February 2014 and will be followed by practical sessions in the Spring. We shall probably repeat the course next February. Members also give advice to the public on beekeeping matters.
Membership fees for the year 1st October 2013 to 30th September 2014 are £29.50 for full membership, £23.50 for Partner member, £14.50 for Junior ,and £5.00 for Social member. Extra is required for BDI for over 3 hives.
