WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
Pembrokeshire Beekeepers' Association (PBKA), was established over 100 years ago and is a charity whose objective is to encourage and support the craft of beekeeping in Pembrokeshire. We have some 200 members throughout the county. Many of these are new to beekeeping and have only one or two beehives, while others have many years experience which they are willing to share. We are managed by a Committee, who set our strategy and ensure that we comply with our Rules of Association.
We are are affiliated to the Welsh Beekeepers’ Association, and are registered as a charity (Charity Commission Registration No. 509570).
We feel that it is especially important at this time to keep bees and to properly manage them to maximise their chances of survival. Wild populations of honeybees are reducing and even beekeepers are suffering losses of bees. Give your bees the best chance of survival by being informed of good practice. Everything the PBKA does is undertaken by volunteers, including taster sessions for the public, beekeeper training, educational talks, events, swarm collections, etc.
