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!.

Stop the importation of honey bees into GB from the EU via Northern Ireland

The UK Government should ensure that people cannot circumvent restrictions on the movement of bees from the EU to GB by moving them via NI. Unrestricted movement of bees could allow Small Hive Beetle to arrive and devastate British beekeeping.
