Mid Cheshire Beekeepers

Mid Cheshire Beekeepers (MCBK) is one of five branches in the Cheshire Beekeeping Association (CBKA), the others being North Cheshire, South Cheshire, Wirral and Stockport. Established around ten years ago MCBK is the youngest CBKA branch and now has around one hundred members, many of whom have just started beekeeping.

We aim to promote the craft of beekeeping and increase public awareness of the importance of honeybees and other pollinating insects to our well-being and existence. To this end we provide training and mentoring for new beekeepers, hold meetings on a range of subjects for both novice and experienced beekeepers, host apiary visits, organise stands at various shows throughout the county, and give talks to schools and local community organisations.

If you are interested in becoming a beekeeper, please come along to any of our branch meetings listed on the Events page of this website where you will be most welcome. If you wish to join MCBK then please download and complete the membership form shown on the About Us page of this website.
