Welcome to the Rugby Beekeepers Association website. We are probably one of the smallest branch of the eight in Warwickshire, with around 80 members. Nonetheless, we are a friendly and lively association and meet the first Wednesday of each month, at the Sacred Heart Church Hall (17 Lime Tree Avenue, Rugby, CV22 7QT) (see Branch Location below) when we have interesting talks from visiting experts on any number of beekeeping topics. We also get together at our branch apiary to conduct various necessary manipulations of the bee colonies.
For those who are interested in starting the immensely satisfying hobby of beekeeping, we conduct a beginners’ beekeeping course in the Spring (usually February). This is an opportunity for those interested in beekeeping to meet others with the same interest, then over a sequence of talks by a team of experienced beekeepers, we provide sufficient information to enable each one to decide whether beekeeping is really for them. This is followed by two opportunities to actively participate in handling bees at our branch apiary. The course is limited to a maximum of 20 beginners, in order to ensure the right amount of personal contact for you with our beekeepers and the guest speakers.
