Liverpool and Merseyside Beekeepers’ Association (LBKA) is affiliated to the BBKA (British Bee Keeping Association). We hold monthly meetings with talks on various aspects of beekeeping from visiting speakers and practical beekeeping demonstrations. You will also have the opportunity to meet fellow apiarists and share knowledge or ask for advice.
For more information or to become a member either visit us at one of our monthly events or contact us with your enquiry .
A very practical aspect of becoming an LBKA member is the provision of insurance, through your BBKA membership, to cover Public Liability and Product Liability. A summary of the cover for shows or farmers markets can be obtained from the members area of the BBKA website or from the National Beekeeping Centre at Stoneleigh. In brief the cover is as follows:
Public Liability Members of the BBKA are covered to a limit of £10 million for any one incident against action arising from their beekeeping activities. There is an excess of £500 applicable for any claims that relate to Third Party Property
Product Liability Members of the BBKA are covered to a limit of £5 million in any one year and any one incident. This covers claims arising from the provision of beekeeping products. There is an excess of £500 for any claims that relate to Third Party Property.
