About Us – and our bees

logoWelcome to the website of the Dorchester & Weymouth Beekeepers Association. This association is a branch of the Dorset County Beekeepers Association, which in turn is affiliated to the British Beekeepers Association. We are a group of about eighty hobby beekeepers, with a wide range of age and experience in the craft.

We run courses for people interested in beekeeping and we have a wealth of experiance in bee matters. In fact it is often said that ask any ten our members how to do something you will get at least eleven different answers.

Meetings of a practical beekeeping nature are organised for members during the active season, and some social events. These are usually held in Dorchester or at the apiary of one of our members.
