About Us
Who are We?

We are a progressive and friendly group who encourage all those who have an interest in honey bees and hive products, whether they are beekeepers or not. We have dedicated meetings for those who don't own bees yet, but are interested in doing so.

Beekeeping has a reputation of being for "older" people, but we are proud of the fact that a high proportion of our newer members are younger people with young families, showing that beekeeping can be a family hobby.

We regularly have juniors who attend meetings and handle bees. Our meetings are held in a vibrant and jovial atmosphere and there is usually some light hearted banter, but the emphasis is on learning because that is why most people join us. We have had a phenomenal growth in membership from 34 in 2004 to around 180 in 2010.

There are no geographical boundaries and although we are called "Wisborough Green", many of our members live some distance from Wisborough Green and some even live in other counties, which is an indication that we provide the services they want.
