Welcome to Kennet Beekeepers Association

About Kennet Beekeepers Association (KBKA)

Kennet Beekeepers Association (KBKA) draws members from the Calne, Chippenham, Devizes and Marlborough areas of Wiltshire. We strive to promote and further the craft of beekeeping and to represent the interests of beekeepers in the local area. We are affiliated to both the Wiltshire Beekeeping Association and the British Beekeepers Association, representing members at county and national levels.

We welcome potential members from all walks of life and can offer many benefits to both the established beekeeper and the complete novice. Some of our members have many years of practical beekeeping experience and this valuable resource is available to new beekeepers.


Kennet Beekeepers Association is federation member of the Wiltshire Beekeepers Association (for further details on WBKA, please visit the Website or Facebook page)

BBKA Asian Hornet Week

10 – 16 September 2018

BBKA will be holding Asian Hornet Week, since this is the time of year when Asian hornets start hawking honeybees at hive entrances.
The early autumn is the last chance available in the year to prevent the emergence of new Asian hornet queens.
