WSBKA Chichester Division

The Chichester Division's website can be found here WSBKA Chichester Division.

Chichester Division is one of the original Divisions of the old Sussex Beekeepers' Association and has a history going back to the early 1940s.  There is, though, nothing old-fashioned about the Division now, and almost 50% of its members have been keeping bees for only 3 years or so.  These new members are enthusiastic beekeepers, enjoying advice and guidance from those with many years’ experience.

The 8-week training course is highly regarded and classroom based, using the most modern teaching aids.  The newly created training apiary (a site where beehives are located) has 8 hives and a number of experienced demonstrator beekeepers, where on-going tuition is provided.

Monthly meetings are held, each with a visiting speaker.  Informal and friendly, these meetings are usually held at the Fishbourne Centre .  This year's programme of meetings is available from their website - as are details of beekeeping, training and other fascinating subjects.  To find out more click on the link above.
