The London Beekeepers' Association (LBKA) is a volunteer-run members' organisation and Registered Charity that represents the interests of beekeepers and urban beekeeping in the central London area (see neighbouring associations). We provide education and advice, promoting responsible bee keeping and raising awareness of the issues affecting bees.
If you live in London and already keep bees, intend to do so or are simply interested in this fascinating hobby, LBKA is the association for you. Even if you don't keep bees, joining us will help support our cause, our campaigns and education programmes.

27 Oct: @k_cleworth if it constitutes fly tipping perhaps
27 Oct: @k_cleworth whilst not criminal it's very poor beekeeping practice and could spread disease. Old combs should be disposed of by being burnt
27 Oct: @k_cleworth that's very bad practice you could pass this on to the national bee unit https://t.co/jJrxhTUPbi
27 Oct: @k_cleworth depends what the circumstances are? R u the keeper? Any sign of disease? Need more detail But tape up entrance/do not move them.
