Plymouth Beekeepers
A branch of Devon Beekeepers' Association - Registered Charity No.270675”  Avon Beekeepers Association (ABKA)  is a beekeeping charitable association affiliated to the British Beekeepers Association (BBKA), and its 5 branches cover an  area stretching from Chipping Sodbury to Weston-super-Mare and from Axbridge to Yate. This area was the extent of the old Avon County when it was created in the 1980s, mainly from the northern districts of Somerset. Since then the county boundaries have changed again and Avon County no longer exists, but the branches within ABKA carry on under the Avon banner, as an appropriate description of the catchment area.          BBKA News
Bi-monthly journal has within its 24 pages, articles that cover all aspects of beekeeping, prepared by beekeepers for beekeepers.
Although this newsletter gives the latest updates on technical issues that have a direct impact on British beekeepers, it also aims much of its content at the growing number of new beekeepers, and with a circulation of 12,390 (October 2008) it aims its content at both the novice and its more experienced members.
