The Twickenham and Thames Valley Bee-keepers’ Association (T&TVBKA) 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. The association is run entirely by volunteers.

T&TVBKA honey: Honey produced by the association’s bees is sold only from the Twickenham apiary during our Open Day and Honey Show day. T&TVBKA honey cannot be bought from retail outlets.The proceeds are used to help maintain the health and wellbeing of bees.
There is a great demand for the association’s honey so arriving early at each of these days is recommended if you want to buy a jar or two.
