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.
