Beginners’ Beekeeping Course – More places now available!

Due to an unprecedented demand for this course, we have been able to secure additional capacity at the Picton Centre in Haverfordwest for the one-day classroom based beginners’ course on Saturday 8th April 2017 at the Picton Centre, Haverfordwest.

These courses have been very popular and given many potential beekeepers the confidence to proceed to practical lessons with Pembrokeshire Beekeepers’ Association.

Places will fill up quickly, so prompt booking to ensure a place is strongly recommended!

To find out more, please email: for details and an application form.

Excellent results at WBKA Basic Assessment

Ten PBKA members took the WBKA Basic Assessment on Sunday 21st August and we are delighted to report that all of the candidates passed with flying colours!

The WBKA Basic Assessment consists of two elements, practical and theoretical, to demonstrate a good level of understanding of the management of bees.

We would like to congratulate them all on their success, which was down to sheer dedication and hard work on their part, as well as a desire to be better beekeepers.

Well done indeed!

We are very proud of them all and hope to have more PBKA members enter the Basic Assessment next year!
