Welcome to the Tiverton & District Beekeepers website.
Tiverton Beekeepers are a medium-sized group of bee keepers of just over 100 members, the club is a branch of the Devon Beekeepers Association (DBKA).
We meet on the third Wednesday in every month from September through to March at Uplowman Village Hall, meetings start at 7:30pm. From April through to June the meetings are held at our branch apiary (weather permitting), and for the two months of July and August we set up our exhibit at the Mid Devon and Honiton Shows. We also exhibit at the Devon County Show in the DBKA marquee. Our magazine "The Buzzette" is distributed by email to members monthly and contains articles written by our members.
