Ashford & District Beekeepers' Association is now open for new members for 2021.  This is a vibrant active association, with a great mentoring policy.   It is limited to just 20 new members and it costs €70 for the year .   This gives you access to lectures, a monthly magazine  and ABKA is a member of the Federation of Irish Beekeepers.  For another €80 you can join the beginners course, which is a must for all newbees!  Virtual lectures are planned for the first quarter of 2021 when both the bees and ourselves are indoors.

Members support on line  !

 WhatsApp Beginner/Intermediate Mentor groups continue to engage now more than ever which provide a great resource especially for those of you with bees for the first year.

We have set up a Members' Forum on our Facebook Page.  Please join this group,  which is private for members only.  Here you can ask questions and share photos and start a conversation on a hot topic.  Our expert member beekeepers are only too happy to answer any questions - remember in beekeeping there is never a stupid question!!

Video Tutorials:  Videos on various aspects of beekeeping, made by our experienced beekeepers have been uploaded to our YouTube channel, which is private.  A link is sent to members to the video by email.  The videos are also uploaded to Members  Facebook Forum.
