Want to Keep Bees?

Do you want to keep bees, or to learn more about them? We can help, or if you already keep bees we can offer mutual support and advice.

  • We have indoor and outdoor events throughout the year and visits to our club apiaries that help novices and new members gain experience handling bees

  • We can give you advice and help on management and disease problems

  • We can advise you what to do with a Swarm if you find one in your garden

  • We can give you opportunities to gain ‘bee experience’ with local friendly beekeepers

  • We run Taster Sessions that give you the opportunity to spend an evening with us for you to gain an understanding of the Beginners Course before you sign up

  • We run a Beginners Course once a year that provides you with the theory and practice of starting beekeeping

  • We run a Developing Beekeeping Skills Course once a year that provides you with further experience of the theory and handling of bees

  • We have monthly club meetings with an experienced speaker who will talk on a bee or environment related subject and give you the opportunity to talk to experienced beekeepers


​Beekeeping is a challenge, especially for novices. It is satisfying when you get it right, with plenty of honey and hives full of healthy bees. But sometimes help and advice are needed to get to that stage.


If you are interested in bees or want to find out more please either contact us to discuss becoming a member of the Chalfonts Beekeepers' Society or book a place on our next Taster Session.
