Training
Various Dates - Weekly Training Apiary Meetings Throughout Summer Months

Our training offering will be made available to WBKA members again this year.  We aim to meet on a weekly basis to allow all of our beekeepers access to the hives at our training apiary.  New and not-so-new beekeepers will be able to develop experience and skills throughout the course of our meetings and the more formal BBKA examinations and assessments system.  We encourage all of our beekeepers to work towards the BBKA Basic Proficiency Certificate, through a series of sessions delivered around the themes of 'fun' and 'practicality'!  Speak to Roy, our Training Coordinator for further detail.

Pub meets
The Bedwardine, Bromyard Road, Worcester WR2 5DJ

These are Worcester Beekeepers' events, but you don't need to be a member, or a bee keeper. We're just a group of like-minded people with an interest in bees and beekeeping, we meet to share experiences and solutions, to socialise, and generally chat about bees. If you are interested in finding out more about bee keeping, just come along and have a chat with us – we don't sting!

These pub meets will be held on the first Thursday in every month at 7.30pm.
