The Archive is an on-going record of the history and development of the Swindon and District Beekeepers Association. (Last updated Febuary 2016)

Here you will find details of all  the  archive  material  about  the Association that  has  been discovered  and  collected  to  date. The records are held in hard copy form – the H Archive, and in electronic form – the E Archive.

The catalogue is regularly being updated and I am always interested to add details of, and reference to any further items which you might know of, or hold themselves – items can be scanned or photographed if you do not wish to donate them permanently to the archive.

The catalogue includes details of back numbers of County and  Swindon Branch magazines held by the Association and by other individuals or organisations, and which feature items of interest to members or researchers.

It also records historical details of the Constitution, Officers and membership lists as available, and tributes to and interviews with veteran beekeepers and members who have given significant service to the Association.

It lists Association newsletters, meeting agendas and minutes, finance records, correspondence, newspaper articles, photographs of events organised by and attended by members of the Association, and other miscellaneous items of particular and general interest.
