The Twickenham and Thames Valley Bee-keepers' Association is a U.K. Registered Charity (Reg.No. 296439) whose aim is to educate the general public in bee-keeping.
Twickenham and Thames Valley Bee-keepers hold free classes for individuals, offer opportunities for group visits and welcome the general public to our annual Honey Show and Open Day events.
These pages are principally intended to serve as an introduction to the Association and it is hoped they may encourage you to make contact with us to learn more about bees and bee-keeping.


Please note that we do NOT sell honey except at our Open Day and Honey Show events.
