21st​ ​September​ ​2017 The​ ​BBKA​ ​has​ ​announced​ ​the​ ​winners​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Bees​ ​in​ ​Art​ ​Competiton​ ​2017. Jamilla Bullock, aged 9, from Tockington near Bristol and artist Julia Kerrison from the South West won with their beautiful and striking bee images. They will each receive a commemorative plate printed with their winning pictures.
Please take part in this important record of British honey quantities. The general public is fascinated by beekeeping, and the BBKA’s annual survey of members is the only large-scale survey about the honey crop in this country. Last year BBKA members achieved on average 26.1 lbs or 11.83 kilos of honey per hive. However, this is based on the experience of beekeepers mainly from England. This year we are inviting the Scottish, Welsh and Ulster beekeepers to join the survey so that we can gain a truly representative picture of honey and beekeeping issues across the UK. The results will be provided free to each beekeeping association.

The latest newsletter from BBKA Vice Chairman Margaret Wilson is full of interesting stuff about new exams and how well the current entrants did. It also explains how events at the next Spring Convention will be colour coded so you can work out which session suits your level of beekeeping experience.
The BBKA has launched a new JustGiving campaign to raise £2000 to get schools skilled in beekeeping. The money raised will be used to give 80 Junior schools or 40 senior schools the chance to join our new schools membership scheme.
