Notes

Please do make a special effort to support our Shows. The Bucks County Classes at the National Honey Show are in danger of extinction. Get your entries ready in great quantity and good time.  Contact Nick Grey, Beulah Cullen or Bill Fisher for guidance.

Any paid-up member may attend any session of the Beginners’ Course without further charge. Your attendance is welcome for both a refresher and to meet and support new members.

Basic Assessment, the first qualification within the BBKA education curriculum, will be offered.  Anyone who is interested please contact the Education Officer for particulars.

In addition to the scheduled meetings, the Society is represented at several public events, details of some appear in our schedule.

If you are willing to meet the public and talk informally about our craft, or assist on the club sales stand, please contact the Secretary, or any committee member. It is both enjoyable and a great help to those members who currently carry the bulk of the work. You do not need to be an expert!


Do take a look around Buckinghamshire, there’s four other groups centered around Aylesbury/Wendover, Buckingham, High Wycombe, and Milton Keynes.  Most have websites where they list their events.  Check them out on the Buckinghamshire County Beekeepers’ website.

The World of Beekeeping is very active, we don’t try to maintain a register of everything else that is going on.  Here’s a few other websites that do have listings of Beekeeping related events and activities:

BeeCraft provide a register of Events, Courses and Information
