Welcome to the GBKA-CG
Gloucestershire Beekeepers Association - Cheltenham and Gloucester Branch.

The GBKA - Gloucestershire Beekeepers Association is a registered charity with branches in Cheltenham & Gloucester, Forest of Dean, Newent, North Cotswold, Cirencester and District, South Gloucestershire and Stroud. The aim of the GBKA is to promote the art of beekeeping in Gloucestershire and provide a local centre for sharing beekeeping knowledge and experience as well as helpful advice for new, experienced and prospective beekeepers.

The Cheltenham & Gloucester Branch of the Gloucestershire Beekeepers currently has about 150 members with a broad spectrum of expertise from beginners to beekeeping experts.

During the Summer months we run our Hands on Training scheme HOTbees at the branch apiary on Friday evenings. We also hold a few weekend Apiary visits.

In the Winter our GBKA-CG branch meets at Uckington Village Hall on the second Friday of the month. Meetings normally start at 7.30pm and close about 10pm. Winter meetings are usually talks from both guest speakers and association members on a range of beekeeping subjects.

Full details of the GBKA-CG branch programme can be found in the Gloucestershire Beekeepers Association, Cheltenham and Gloucester Branch calendar
