Croydon Beekeepers' Association
Welcome to Croydon Beekeepers Association, a Division of Surrey Beekeepers Association, founded 1879. Registered Charity No 1026386.
We are one of the oldest Divisions in Surrey with a long and interesting history. We are proud that in November 2013 honey from our apiary was awarded a first place in one of the categories at the National Honey Show. Visit ‘About us’ to learn more about our heritage and what we do.
Are you interested in bees and beekeeping?
Bees are fascinating creatures that evolved over 100 million years ago and the highly developed communication systems of our present day honey bee and colonies will amaze you.
If you would like to learn more, you may wish to arrange a visit to our apiary where you will be warmly welcomed by local beekeepers and shown the bees and the hives where the honey, honeycomb and beeswax are made. Click on the ‘Visit our apiary’ section of this site for more information.
For information about our programme of events throughout the year, please see listings on the ‘Events’ pages.
