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


The theory part of our 2022 beginner's beekeeping course was run via Zoom over six evenings during March.

This course now continues with practical sessions throughout the summer at our training apiary.

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.

2022 CSBKA Apiary Programme

We re-started our apiary meetings on Saturdays at our Association’s training apiary. The meetings start at 10.00. No need to book - just come along. Please bring your own clean bee suit. Gloves will be provided. To protect more vulnerable members of the club, please do a LFT before you come and only come if negative and symptom free. Please complete registration form on arrival and contact us by sending an Email to csbkamembership@gmail should you develop symptoms following your visit.
