Cambridgeshire Beekeepers’ Association is a charity, promoting beekeeping to the public and providing advice and assistance to beekeepers.


NOTICE TO All MEMBERS

Following the latest guidance issued by the government in relation to COVID-19, we have reluctantly concluded that we should postpone forthcoming CBKA events that were scheduled to take place before the end of June, including:

•   All training sessions at the Association’s apiaries

•   16 April Talk on “Beekeeping in the Middle Ages”

•   19 April AGM

•   17 May Coach trip to RHS Wisley
      (NB: refunds to be provided to all those who have already paid a deposit)

•   21 May Talk on “Man and Bees, the continuing journey”

•   12 June Bee quiz

At this point in time we cannot specify alternative dates for these events, but we look forward to resuming our normal programme of activities as soon as the situation permits. In light of the postponement of the AGM, the current Committee will remain in place until a further AGM and elections can be arranged, and the Committee will continue to work on behalf of the Members. Please continue to check the e-bulletins, facebook page or CBKA website for further updates.
In the meantime, we offer our best wishes to all members, their families and their friends at this difficult time.

The CBKA Committee

Please Also Note:

The BBKA Spring Convention 2020 has been cancelled.

As a result the BDI has announced postponement of its Annual General Meeting scheduled for 3 April 2020 which was to be held at the Spring Convention. A new date and venue will be advised once the current situation with Covid-19 has suitably evolved.
