East Dorset Beekeepers Association covers, as its name implies, all areas in the eastern end of the county. We are affiliated to the Dorset County Beekeepers Association and also to the British Beekeepers Association.
The Association tries to help members by organising a programme of meetings throughout the year, including practical demonstrations in the open season. The Association also forms a platform where beekeepers can meet to discuss and follow up their common interest.
There is a County magazine, Honeycraft, which, when you become a full member, you will receive quarterly and also the BBKA magazine monthly. The Association possess two extractors which members can borrow for a modest charge to enable them to extract their honey crop.
Our winter meetings are held at the Broadstone Community Centre, which is central for the area we serve. We have an apiary at West Moors where we carry out demonstrations and those who wish can get in some practice in bee handling and management. We also visit some of our members' apiaries which creates added interest.
To join us please complete our 2016/2017 membership form. If you are a registered UK Tax Payer please complete the Gift Aid Form. Our current programme of events is listed in our newsletter which can be downloaded from the box on the right.
