Over 60 Years of Beekeeping on the Wirral.

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.

CORONAVIRUS

Cheshire Beekeepers’ Association Wirral branch is taking the spread of Coronavirus extremely seriously. Our number one priority remains the safety and wellbeing of our members, and we are taking active measures to keep them safe. To help minimise the spread of the virus, we are following the latest Government recommendations to protect our members. All our planned events for the next few months have been cancelled.

Any member who is unable to manage their colonies as a result of the Coronavirus restrictions should contact our branch secretary who should be able to put them in touch with another member willing to help.


The aims of the Cheshire Beekeepers’ Association Wirral Branch are to promote and further the craft of bee keeping on Wirral. We do this through meetings, apiary events and educational courses.”

Activities
