The Stratford and District Bee Keeping Association (SBKA) has been supporting local Beekeepers since it was first formed in 1936. SBKA provides help and training to members who are new to the craft, by an Introduction course for beginners plus help to develop more experienced Apiarists by mentoring or instruction through the BBKA exam process. We have specialist equipment ( Honey extractors,veils and skeps) which members can use and have an active Association Apiary where practical sessions in a safe environment take place throughout the summer. We also aim to supply locally adapted bees and Queens from the Association Apiary to new and experienced members.

In the millennium we published a booklet about the association. A copy is available below:
