Articles required!

The WBKA has asked if anyone has any articles or other items for the Spring edition of the Welsh Beekeeper magazine.  They are particularly keen to receive material that covers beekeeping management and colony build up in the months of March to June, but articles of a more general nature, letters, feedback and suggestions are also very welcome.  Also please remember the WBKA quarterly photographic competition and send in any entries.

The closing date for both items for the magazine and the photographic competition is Monday January 31st and they should be sent to Basil Wolf at

Volunteers required!

The PBKA has been very successful in recent years with its ever increasing membership, the development of the Pembrokeshire Beekeeping Centre and the continuing popularity of its training sessions at the Association apiaries. We also have other developments in the pipeline for 2022, including our new training apiary at Scolton, which we will be advising you on further in due course.

It all takes a lot of work to keep the Association running however and we are currently looking for additional volunteers to help!

Roles which currently need filling include:

  • Membership Secretary
  • Swarm Coordinators
  • Undertaking routine hive inspections, maintenance, etc. at the Association apiaries

If you are interested in becoming a PBKA volunteer, please email the Chair, Paul Eades, at

Many thanks!
