MBKA holds regular meetings throughout the summer, using apiaries belonging to members. In the winter we move indoors with meetings, lectures, educational and social events. These provide great opportunities to share beekeeping problems, keep informed about the latest threats, compare notes and simply enjoy the company of others with an interest in beekeeping.

Our annual attendance at the Kent County Show, local ploughing matches and various other local outdoor events mean the Association is as busy during the summer as our bees!.


Asian Hornet

We are asking everyone to keep an eye out for asian hornets, their nests will become more visible with the leaves falling from the trees. We need your help to spot them and save our bees!
