Welcome to Wokingham & District Beekeepers Association (W&DBKA)
Supporting beekeepers and those interested in beekeeping
We are a UK charity (number:1200002) and our aim is to promote good beekeeping and encourage people to learn about the fascinating world of the honeybee and the art of beekeeping.
As part of the British Beekeepers Association (BBKA) our members can enjoy a range of benefits including – BBKA News, Insurance and much more.
Attend one of our Open sessions at the Association’s apiary in the spring or summer to get an introduction to the art of beekeeping. You are also welcome to come and meet us at one of our regular association meetings.
Check our News & Events for meetings and Open apiary session dates. Contact us if you wish to meet us.
Visitors of all ages are welcome.
The Association is a focal point for local beekeepers, providing opportunities for members to network with other beekeepers and keep on learning by:
- taking part in our seasonal, weekly inspections at the Apiary
- getting together with other beekeepers, twice a month, at informal spring and summer meetings, and
- attending our monthly winter meetings and listening to talks and presentations by expert
