What is being funded?
Snowdonia National Park Authority will give a one off contribution of £200 towards the purchase of a traditional beehive of the national or WBC type and/or associated equipment. The scheme is restricted to one application per household.
How can I be eligible for the grant?
You must have completed a WBKA course (or equivalent) within the last 5 years and submit a copy of your certificate as proof.
When are the WBKA courses held?
These courses are held annually in various locations. We suggest you contact WBKA or your local beekeeping association for further information on where and when courses will be held.
What are the advantages of registering with your local beekeepers’ association?
By joining with your local beekeepers’ association you will be granted insurance for your beehive and also your colony should there be a disease outbreak. It also means that a bee inspector will call by to make sure that your beehive and your colony are in good condition. You get a lot for a small fee!
