BBKA News...

...is published monthly in full colour and has within its 28 pages, articles

that cover all aspects of beekeeping. Although this newsletter gives the latest updates on technical issues that have a direct impact on British beekeepers,with a circulation of 19,465 in April 2011 it aims its content at both the novice and the more experienced members. It is constantly refreshed, it is informed, it is sometimes witty, it is never dull nor is it too repetitive, it carries advertisements by suppliers and manufactures of beekeeping equipment.
