Membership

If you are interested in beekeeping, becoming a member of Worcester Beekeepers’ Association is an ideal starting point. You don’t even need to keep bees, just have an interest in this fascinating and rewarding hobby. Membership costs as little as £5 per year for an associate membership – for those who do not yet have bees of their own.

If you decide to keep bees you will need to become a full member. The annual subscription for up to three hives starts at £27. A full membership automatically enrols you as a member of the British Beekeeper’s Association (BBKA). Not only will you gain a wealth of knowledge from the BBKA and be covered by comprehensive and product liability insurance, but you will also receive a monthly newsletter of what’s happening in the beekeeping world.
