Current news from Hagley & Stourbridge Beekeepers' Association
The current cold weather is giving cause for great concern. Traditionally you extract honey on 22 May to avoid it setting in the comb (due to the presence of Oilseed Rape), this year it looks like there will be very little honey in any of the hives! We are considering feeding the bees incase they starve.

Hagley & Stourbridge Beekeepers' Association promote and support beekeepers in the area though training courses and mentoring. We run a training apiary at Iverley.
Hagley & Stourbridge Beekeepers is part of Worcestershire Beekeepers' Association which in turn is part of the British Beekeepers' Association.
No one knows when we started because all our records were lost in 1998, we believe it was sometime in the 19th century.
Our aim is to buy a fragment of land in the area with vehicle access and nearby parking for up to ten cars, where we can establish a permanent teaching apiary with storage for our equipment.
