Hives in the Apiary [Michael Holland]

Kidderminster Beekeepers’ Association has a training apiary near Stourport. It is used to site the Association’s own hives and as a venue for meetings, where members have the opportunity to see beekeepers in action and get some experience of opening hives and inspecting colonies.

The apiary may also be used by new members to site their own hives. In addition, the Association keeps a register of people (not necessarily beekeepers) who have apiary sites available. If you are looking for somewhere to site an apiary or would like to offer a spot for a beekeeper to put hives in, please contact the Secretary.
