High Wycombe & District Beekeepers’ Association is a thriving group of enthusiastic beekeepers from all walks of life founded in 1944 to promote bees and beekeeping.

On 17th March 2019, we held a 75th Anniversary Party to mark to actual day of the Association’s creation.

We hold monthly evening meetings with a visiting speaker at Trinity Church, London Road, High Wycombe.  These meetings are open to all, so if you’re interested in taking up beekeeping or even just curious, why not come along? 

For members, we also hold monthly “Developing your beekeeping” meetings, training courses, practical sessions at our own apiary, and specialist days of interest.
