BBKA News Archive Website

Some of you may be aware that the BBKA News Archive website was unavailable earlier this year whilst it was undergoing repairs and updates.

I am writing to confirm that the Archive website is now fully operational again and we have made a few changes:

  • To log into the website members will be asked to complete 3 fields:

  • Field one: BBKA membership number eg 95.55.101 This is the printed on the receipt your membership secretary emails you when you pay your membership fees.
    If you can’t find your membership number please contact your local membership secretary.

  • Field two: Your postcode.
  • Field three: The generic password which is printed on the first page of the BBKA magazine.

  • Copies of the archived magazines can be downloaded in .pdf format. This will allow you to download issues to your phone or tablet. To do this, select a magazine and the click on the ‘Download as PDF’ button in the top RH corner.

  • Did you know that as part of a reciprocal agreement, you can also access archived copies of An Beachaire, the newsletter from the Federation of Irish Beekeepers Associations (FIBKA)?

  • Editions that are over six months old are available for you to read online but you cannot download them. From the ‘Select Publication’ drop down menu in the top LH corner, choose An Beachaire.

Kind regards
