Welcome to Newent Beekeepers!
The Newent Bee Keepers Association is a Branch of the Gloucestershire Bee Keepers Association, which is affiliated to the British Bee Keepers Association (BBKA). They all exist to promote and further the craft of beekeeping.
Members meet to increase their understanding of bee keeping, discuss difficulties and current developments and share in their successes as well as disappointments. We have regular meetings with visiting speakers and talks by our own members. Members also give advice to the public on beekeeping matters.
Would you like to keep bees? We run a yearly training course for beginners. This year’s course is oversubscribed but we will be running another course starting February 2020. The course starts starts with a theory course running on Monday evenings and will be followed by practical sessions in the Spring.
