The Wirral Branch was formed in 1961 and is one of 5 branches which makes up the Cheshire Beekeepers' Association (CBKA). We hope you find our website helpful - whether you’re a member, considering beekeeping for the first time, or having trouble with bees and looking for help. We intend to keep you informed about what Beekeepers are doing on the Wirral & will offer advice & guidance throughout the year. Keep checking the site for regular updates.
