Welcome to the Central Sussex BKA

Are you thinking of keeping bees? Wherever you live in the country, harvesting honey from your own bees is a very rewarding experience - why not learn to become a beekeeper with us? Maybe you are a beekeeper already and want to join a local Association? If so, you're in the right place.


Introduction to Beekeeping Course

Want to learn what it is like to keep bees with the reward of having your own honey? Queen Bee

We will be running a two day introduction to beekeeping course on 8th & 22nd April 2017 from 9.30 am to 4.30 pm. The mornings will be at the Roffey Millenium Hall in Horsham and the afternoons at our Pease Pottage training apiary looking at the bees if the weather permits (protective clothing will be provided).

The cost will be £50 per person which includes a year's membership to Central Sussex BKA (Ambrosian Membership).

The Introductory course is designed to show what is involved with beekeeping and also is for people that would like to know more about bees and not necessarily want to keep bees. For these reasons we have kept the subscription fee low. The fee includes a season’s basic membership to Central Sussex BKA, therefore you can attend all our apiary and Winter meetings.

After the two day course (weather permitting) you should have handled bees and know what is involved with keeping bees including costs and time commitments.
