About Us

We welcome people who may be interested in taking up beekeeping as a hobby or a profession. Feel free to come along to a Branch meeting, e-mail the Branch Secretary or give one of us a ring.

Full membership of our Branch currently costs £30 per annum. This price also includes one years membership of the British Beekeepers Association (BBKA), public and product liability insurance and bee disease insurance for up to three hives. For an application form please visit our membership page.

The local Association has the following main activities :-

A majority of our members come from in and around the areas surrounding Ormskirk, Chorley, Wigan, Leyland, St. Helens, Skelmersdale, Hesketh Bank and Bolton. If you are interested in beekeeping but think that you live too far away or that you are not in our catchment area come along to a Branch meeting anyway and take the first steps into an 8000 year old craft!
