Chalfont St Giles Bee Society
The society was founded in 1976 with the aim of providing a beekeeping society in the Chalfonts area. The aim of the society is to promote the craft of beekeeping, publicise its benefits in the local community, and to foster co-operation between local beekeepers, which is has been doing for over 30 years. The society has grown to an active group of beekeepers with over 120 members and over 250 hives in the area. These hives house more than 12 million bees at the height of summer, ensuring pollination of fruit bushes and trees, vegetable crops and flowers. Local honey can be found for sale in delicatessens, butchers, health food shops and other outlets in the area as well as at local shows and fetes during the summer. The society also provides a service to the community by giving talks, exhibitions and providing a swarm removal service.
