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.

 

As an association, we place great emphasis on training and education of beekeepers, at all levels. We have an association apiary, where you can come and find out about beekeeping through one of our ‘Taster Days’, enabling you to look in a hive under the guidance of experienced beekeepers and decide if beekeeping is for you.  You might want to follow this with an introductory course, or progress to take formal British Beekeeping Association (BBKA) assessment and qualifications.  At the highest level, we contribute each year to funding an East Anglian Research Student (EARS), enabling apiculture research to PhD level.

 

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)
