Membership of the Association starts at £15 a year and we are now taking applications for 2011.
Your membership fee is used to:
- Support the Welsh Beekeepers’ Association (WBKA) which represents beekeepers in Wales at the national level with the Welsh Assembly and runs national events for example the Annual Convention and Conference. The WBKA also negotiate product and third party liability insurance for our members.
- Provide insurance through Bee Diseases Insurance towards replacement costs following Ministry Bee Inspector’s confirmation of certain notifiable diseases and a resulting destruction order. These destructions, while a last resort, have kept diseases at a minimal level over the years and the compensation ensures that beekeepers are responsible in reporting suspected infections.
- Run Pembrokeshire Beekeepers’ Association itself less than £5 is retained which we use to run the Association’s training apiary, book rooms for meetings, send newsletters to members and maintain the websites.
So, whether you keep bees or not, please help support beekeeping in Pembrokeshire and Wales by joining our Association.
