West Suffolk Beekeepers’ Association is non-profit making, aiming to support all levels of beekeeper, from the absolute novice to the long-established apiarist. Please read the Education page on our structured course for new beekeepers and further optional training for the BBKA Basic Assessment and subsequent modules.

During the summer our own Apiary is open to view (by arrangement) on alternate Sunday afternoons and in winter, a monthly series of talks on all aspects of beekeeping takes place.

There are many benefits of being a member, please read more on our Membership page!

If you’re not sure whether beekeeping is for you or just wish to learn more, please contact us or talk to us via our Facebook page.
