hive entrance

Oswestry Beekeepers’ Association is a small and informal group of beekeepers based in and around Oswestry.

We are fully affiliated to Shropshire Beekeepers Association

We have a schedule of meetings each summer at members’ home apiaries, where an experienced beekeeper will demonstrate a hive inspection appropriate to the time of year, giving tips and advice for newcomers and old hands alike. The event ends with a relaxed exchange of news, ideas and conversation over tea and sandwiches.

Aspiring beekeepers are very welcome to come along and join us for a taster session to learn something about this fascinating and rewarding hobby. Please use the ‘Contact Us’ page to express your interest in attending.

We are often lucky with the weather and enjoy a pleasant afternoon.

One of our main events is the annual Oswestry Show where you will find some of our members on hand to give help and advice to anyone interested.


Membership is now from November 1st to October 31st.

Public Liability

Members are insured against Third Party Claims.

Members are also insured for up to three hives, with Bee Disease Insurance against Foul Brood Disease. Extra hives can be insured through the Treasurer.

Some contributions may be made towards the payment of Exam fees for the approved B.B.K.A examinations.
