West Wiltshire

Members of this Branch come from towns and villages in the Bradford on Avon, Trowbridge, Westbury and Warminster areas.
We hold meetings monthly during the winter months at the Methodist Church Hall, Station Road, Westbury on Monday evenings, with talks by knowledgeable beekeepers on various allied subjects, also practical evenings.
Apriary training sessions are held fortnightly through the summer at the branch apiary which is located on a farm below the White Horse, and these are opportunities for beginners to see inside a hive and determine whether   beekeeping is for them.

Courses are run for beginners and those wishing to take the basic beekeeping exam. Established beekeepers can always learn from seeing the conditions in other hives, and discuss any problems they may have with others of many years experience.

Full membership of West Wilts Branch also gives membership of the Wiltshire Beekeepers Association and British Beekeepers Association, the National body giving third party insurance relating to members' bees and beekeeping.
