North Bucks Beekeepers' Association -

NBBKA is based in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire

We aim to promote & further the craft of beekeeping to highlight the importance of bees in our environment & the vital ecological role that they play.

The association:

  • Runs regular meetings where guest speakers give informative talks & demonstrations
  • Runs theoretical & practical courses for beginners & improvers
  • Runs a teaching apiary
  • Lends books, slides, posters & dvds from our library
  • Hires equipment for a small charge
  • Issues regular newsletters
  • Attends local fetes & similar e.g. Heritage Weekends
  • Gives talks to local schoools, clubs & organisations
  • Aims to have a meeting or an activity of an educational nature every month

If you are an aspiring beekeeper, NBBKA will loan you specialist equipment such as veils & bee jackets until you decide whether you want to continue the craft. What is more, if you do decide to go ahead, many items can be obtained second hand thus keeping the initial outlay to a modest size.

Note: lending of equipment is a benefit for members only and is subject to availability. As an aspiring beekeeper we therefore encourage you to join our association.
