About us – what we do and how to make contact

NB In the year 2020/21 we will continue to meet online rather than in person until conditions allow face-to-face meetings again.

Whitstable & Herne Bay Beekeepers is a branch of the Kent Bee-Keepers’ Association.  The branch membership has grown considerably over the past 10 years to the point where it now has 45+ active beekeepers and a large number of Friends. We have monthly meetings on the afternoon of the first Saturday in each month, an apiary with five hives used for teaching and demonstration purposes on the Canterbury campus of the University of Kent (by kind permission of the University) and a second teaching apiary with eight hives at a nearby farm.

The monthly meetings are well attended and vary between inspection of the teaching hives plus news/information sharing during the months when it is warm enough to open the hives, with talks and longer demonstrations during the later autumn and early winter.

If you would like to contact the branch for information about our activities or to learn more about becoming a beekeeper, please contact the Branch Secretary ( phone and email details below) in the first instance.

Our Facebook group can be found at https://www.facebook.com/groups/359167444256663/ and anyone is welcome to join.

If you would like to join the branch as a Friend, or for any existing members intending to renew their membership for 2020/21, you can download and then complete the form below and return it as stated.

Membership each year runs from 1st October round to 30th September.  Membership 20-21
