Penrith Beekeepers Association was first established in 1902.
In 2016 it was registered as Penrith & District Beekeepers Association , a charitable incorporated organisation (CIO). It will continue to be generally known as ‘Penrith Beekeepers Association’ (PBKA).
Although we welcome beekeepers from all areas of Cumbria, our members mainly come from Penrith and the communities in and around the Eden Valley.
Penrith & District Beekeepers Association aims to:
- preserve the honey bee by promoting the craft of beekeeping.
- educate the public of the benefit of bees in the environment.
During the winter there is a programme of regular meetings and social events. During the summer most of PDBKA’s meetings are held at the Association Training Apiary at Acorn Bank (the National Trust Property at Temple Sowerby just outside Penrith). These meetings give members opportunities to learn more about beekeeping issues and exchange knowledge and news. Occasionally visits are made to members’ hives.
As a charity, we welcome donations that help us to maintain the development of the Association Training Apiary at Acorn Bank and our other charitable objectives.
