Thinking of joining us?
A friendly, safe place to learn and practice
all aspects in the art of beekeeping.
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.
If you live in Crawley, Horsham or surrounding area, why not come and join us at one of our regular meetings? The Central Sussex Beekeeping Association would welcome you as a member. We are affiliated to the British Beekeeping Association (BBKA) as well as being a division of West Sussex BKA. We have our own Apiary and hold regular meetings throughout the year.
During the winter, we meet once a month, where a series of informal lectures and talks are organised. In the warmer months we meet more often at our training apiary where you can have a taste of beekeeping in a friendly and, more importantly, safe environment. If you would like to find out more or come and join us, please telephone the chairman more details or contact us here using this helpful page. We look forward to seeing you.
Our regular Saturday morning practical training sessions at our Pease Pottage apiary will start on the 14th April at 9.30. All members are welcome to come along. Please note that you may need your wellies as the track is muddy.
Keep up to date with all things honey bees happening in the Central Sussex region. We'll be posting anything noteworthy on our Blog, as well as sending out our ever popular newsletter to our members.
Meetings & Events
Keep up to date with our latest published events and check the calendar. We do our best to keep this up to date, but if you know of an event we should know about and publicise, get in touch with us here.
If you've discovered a swarm and would like it moved, then you may be able to get help here. Within our Association, we have a number of members registered with the BBKA who may be willing to collect honey bee swarms for you.
