Existing members

We’ll soon be sending you a renewal link via the British Beekeepers’ Association’s (BBKA) online system. Should you wish to renew your membership in 2022, please click on the link when you receive it and check your details are up-to date. Then, select the number of hives you plan to run in 2022 and the membership category you require and your subscription will be automatically calculated.

The renewal link must be used for existing members. Please do not send your subscription without completing the online form as this may result in a delay to your membership. Any applications made after we have completed our return will result in a delay to your insurance cover and to the receipt of BBKA news.

Once you have submitted the online form, you can send your payment electronically to Meridian’s bank account as usual.

Meridian Beekeepers, Lloyds Bank, Bishops Waltham, 30-90-85, 00962116. Please use your surname as a reference.

Changes to British Beekeepers’ Association and Hampshire Beekeepers’ Association subscriptions

The BBKA has increased its 2022 subscription for full members from £19.00 to £21.00 and Hampshire Beekeepers’ Association (HBKA) is restoring its annual fee to £5.00 from £2.00 last year. As Meridian did not reduce your subscription in response to HBKA’s previous reductions, we have been able to absorb most of the £5.00 increase in subscription costs to HBKA and BBKA. However, in order to maintain Meridian funds for apiary and events costs and to support developments such as the proposed queen rearing programme, your committee decided on 16 September 2021 to increase subscription fees by £1.00 in 2022. This is the first increase in membership fees for many years and we hope you will understand the need for this change. For further details about each category of membership, please click here.
