We would like to invite anybody interested in Beekeeping to come to one of our meetings and see what beekeeping is all about.

RBKA have visiting speakers that deliver interesting talks on various aspects of beekeeping. Past speakers have inclucded talks on wax modelling and candle making, bee diseases, early spring management, the British Bee Breeding Programme, mead and wine making, preparing honey and other bee products for show and sale, pollination under glass in a 2½ acre greenhouse to name but a few.

There is usually a honey show at the beginning of our winter programme with various categories including a novice class and a honey cake category.
