Huddersfield & District Beekeepers’ Association

The Huddersfield & District Beekeeepers’ Association was formed more than 80 years ago to further best practices in the craft of beekeeping.

Today the club also aims to inform and educate the public about the important role that bees play in the environment, especially now when bees are such an endangered species.

The majority of the Club’s members have their own colonies. In the summer, visits are arranged to members’ apiaries, while in the winter the Club hosts talks from visiting speakers.

Although the Club meets in Linthwaite, it is in the process of developing an apiary within Farnley Estates, which will be used for educational and training programmes, and for demonstrations to invited groups.


Huddersfield & District Beekeepers’ Association meeting times

The Huddersfield & District Beekeepers’ Association meets every month at the Broad Oak bowling club in Linthwaite or at members’ apiaries.

Meetings usually take place on Wednesday evenings, or weekends during the summer months.
