Gillingham (Kent)

'The Society was set up on 26th November 2003 after a Steering Group sounded out parishioners' views. Public meetings showed there was an appetite for a non-political, non-campaigning Society that could capture a wide range of interests within the newly enlarged (April 2003) Parish that combined Lynsted with Kingsdown. Kingsdown brings part of our Parish into the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).'

'MBKA holds regular meetings throughout the summer, using apiaries belonging to members. In the winter we move indoors with meetings, lectures, educational and social events. These provide great opportunities to share beekeeping problems, keep informed about the latest threats, compare notes and simply enjoy the company of others with an interest in beekeeping.'
