There are currently four beekeeping beekeepers who have been named members of the British Beekeeping Association (BBMA) family of organisations: Samantha Bee, Mother Bee, Babies Bee and Baby Bee.
These members were not members of their families or communities before their organisations became members of BBMA.
In 2017, they are all named in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List of the BBMA’s Annual Meeting, which is held in London.
In 2018, the BBM is planning to expand the number of beekeeping and beekeeping related organisations that it has, to include other beekeeping groups.
The BBMA has also announced plans to increase its presence in new areas and to provide support to other beekeepers and beekeepers.
The organisation’s website has more information about the group.
The Queen’s birthday honours list will be announced in October.
“It’s a very important day for our country, for our communities, for the beekeeping industry,” said BBMA chief executive, Emma Jones.
“And we look forward to welcoming more members of this family into our organisation.”
The Queen will join the BBMP for the first time in 2019.
The list was first introduced in 1885 and has been used for over 50 years.
