Covid-19 Update

Unfortunately we have had to cancel our annual auction, club nights and events including the MVBKA Honey Show at the Alresford Show.

 We hope you stay safe and if you need help or advice with your bees please send a message using the Enquiry Form, or message us on Facebook or message Jean directly.

Want to Buy and Sell?

We know that many people were expecting to buy and sell at the MVBKA Auction. If you have bees or equipment to sell or if you want to buy please fill out an Enquiry Form  and we will advertise it on the website, on Facebook and in our monthly Newsletter.

Otherwise see you in May 2021.

Are you interested in Beekeeping?

The practical training course has been cancelled this year. If you are a new beekeeper and want to observe inspections from a safe distance at the apiary please look in the April newsletter for more information.
The 2021 Theory Course will start in January next year.  You can register you interest using the Training Enquiry form.

Asian Hornet - a threat to bees

The Asian Hornet is a huge risk to the honey bee and other flying insects in the UK.

Overwintering queens will be starting to build their initial nest in sheds, in the ground or in trees. Please be vigilant and if you see a nest or the Asian Hornet then please take a photo and send to the NBU.
