Welcome to the website of the Coventry & District Branch of the Warwickshire Beekeepers Association (www.covbeebranch.co.uk).
Please use the links above to explore these webpages and find out what we do and what we have to offer to either new or more experienced Beekeepers.
To give us an idea of who's been visiting us here, we would be pleased if you would like to make an entry in the guestbook. Any 'constructive' comments about the website would also be welcomed!
The branch was launched in 1932 to provide education in, and the promotion of, beekeeping and to support beekeepers in the Coventry and District Area. The branch is a sub-branch of the Warwickshire Beekeepers Association which in turn is affiliated to the British Beekeepers Association.
BEES IN YOUR GARDEN?
If you have bees in your garden/home and are unsure what type of bee they are or who to contact if they are a swarm of honey bees that you would like removed, please see the indentification/contact information in our SWARMS section.
Information on beekeeping courses that we are planning can be found on our Training page.
MyDigitalTech have very kindly donated a laptop for our branch committee use. We are very grateful to them for this generous offer!
