The West Glamorgan Beekeepers Association was established in 1878 and still has a strong membership today. We have passed our centenary some 18 years ago and we now look forward to the next 100 years! The Association has survived a number of geographical boundary changes and covers the West Glamorgan and surrounding areas. We are a member of the Welsh Beekeepers Association and are affiliated to the British Beekeepers. We strive to present an educational and social structure to cover the needs of the beekeepers we represent. There is a contact point most months of the year, indoor meetings during the Winter months and at local venues during the Summer. Activities at these Association meetings can be wide ranging, but all are connected to beekeeping.
