Northallerton, Thirsk & District Beekeepers Association

Welcome to our Website

We are a small, friendly Association in the heart of the Hambleton District. We meet at Borrowby Village Hall in the winter months, and enjoy visits to different apiaries during the summer. We come from all walks of life and our ages span several generations, as does our experience. We welcome new members regardless of their level, you don't even need any bees, we can soon sort that out! 

Our calendar runs in 2 parts. Winter and Summer.

Winter : Meet at Borrowby Village Hall 1st Wed. of the month (except Jan) with April being our final indoor meet.

Summer: Meet 1 Sunday a month at an apiary or on the moors. As this is not always in the same place at the same date please phone for details.

AGM : Usually the first Wednesday in October. 

If you are new to beekeeping contact us using details below to see if we are running a course.
