Introduction From the Chairman​


Hi and welcome to the wonderful world of beekeeping and the West Norfolk and King's Lynn Beekeepers' Association (WNKLBA) website.

Beekeeping is wonderful, it can be very rewarding and enjoyable, at times frustrating but always amazing.
Beekeepers, like bees, are sociable animals who enjoy each others company, comparing ideas and helping each other out.
We have an association apiary where you can come and find out about beekeeping, look in a hive and be surrounded by thousands of wonderful honey bees. You will be suitably protected and under the guidance of experienced beekeepers.

We run courses and taster days for those just interested, beginners and more advanced.

If you are thinking of taking up beekeeping, read the 'beekeeping' pages and then contact Peter Davies (Chairman) on 01553 827008 or the relevant person so that we can help you get started.
If you are an existing member then you will find features about the association, its members, bulk buying scheme, newsletters and much more.
You are welcome and encouraged to use the website to share your experiences of beekeeping.
Our events are open to everyone so do come along and see us in action. The events page has a list of all the events for the year and contact details for each of them

See you soon,

Peter Davies (Chairman)
