Bee Health/Safari Day feedback

Would all PBKA members who attended the Bee Health/Safari on Saturday 16th July, please fill in a feedback form – they only take a couple of minutes and it will help the National Bee Unit to justify more events like this in the future. Here is the link to the form.

Also the NBU has just (this week) made ‘live’, a video animation demonstrating the work of the NBU and encouraging people to register on BeeBase – click here

Note that all beekeepers have a duty to keep healthy, disease free bees and the PBKA strongly recommends that all beekeepers sign up to Beebase in order to ensure that they receive any warnings and can obtain advice etc. in the event of a disease outbreak.

We would like to express our sincere thanks to the National Bee Unit and their team, for a very interesting and most enjoyable course. 🐝

200 PBKA Members!

We are pleased to report that Pembrokeshire Beekeepers’ Association now has 200 members, a significant milestone and a demonstration of how interest in beekeeping continues to grow in Pembrokeshire.

We would like to welcome all new members to the association and also to thank those existing members who continue to maintain their membership with the PBKA year after year.

The new training apiary has started very well this season and we hope to keep progressing as an association with further improvements.

It is encouraging to see our association going from strength to strength and on behalf of the Committee, I would like to thank you all for your support and to wish you well with your beekeeping!

Very best regards

Paul Eades

Chair

Pembrokeshire Beekeepers’ Association

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 pbkaapiarymanager@live.co.uk

Many thanks!
