Try a taste of being a bee keeper | 2024 Taster Day | Sat 5th August 2023
High Wycombe Beekeeping Association run a beginners’ course every spring but many people thinking of taking up beekeeping may like to have a one day ‘taste’ of what it all entails. This is an opportunity to come and see the apiary, talk to experienced beekeepers, open some hives, and gain some knowledge which may help you decide if you want to commit to a more formal course of tuition.
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. There are several classes of membership, why don’t you join us?
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.
We give talks on beekeeping and make visits to local schools, youth groups and fetes. To arrange a visit Email firstname.lastname@example.org .
We run a Beginners’ Beekeeping Course each Spring.
