There are five local Divisions each of which have their own website:
The Divisions have meetings which help train people in beekeeping. See the Events page for details or go to the Divisions' websites for more information. In spring and summer the meetings tend to be at apiaries, which gives members a chance to handle bees and beehives.
Beekeeping is essentially a practical craft so it is easier to learn by doing it. You need the company of experienced friends, and the Divisions provide this. You never stop learning about beekeeping.
Beekeepers in West Sussex are served by our neighbour, the West Sussex Beekeepers Association.
Nearby Kent, Surrey and Hampshire also have active Associations.
