We have decided that until the national strategy for managing the Covid-19 virus changes, the Teaching Apiary sessions this season will be cancelled and the apiary will to stay closed to members. Members of the committee will manage the apiary bees for the time being but if members need stock, such as frames or foundation, an order can be placed by email to SCBKA membership & education secretary and collected from Saxmundham on set days.
For your information, the BBKA has advised that, whatever the situation, travelling to look after bees will be allowed as they are considered to be livestock.
The Events pages will list the opening times and dates for the 2020 season when the apiary reopens, please note that not all sessions will be open to everyone.
L&DBKA 2020 AGM was held at 2pm on 8th February. The proposal to change our name to the Suffolk Coastal Beekeepers' Association was approved.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) became enforceable on 25th May 2018. It aims to give members of the public control over their personal data held by various organisations. There is no need for members of SCBKA to take any action as far as their membership of the Association is concerned, but we would ask you to read our policy notice here
