Useful and Interesting Links 'We have included here some suggestions of national organisations which are of interest to local historians and whose websites provide useful information. In the section labelled "Local Societies" we have provided just a small sample of the many local history societies which now have their own website. Groups and societies dealing with local history vary widely in what they call themselves and what they do, not all have the term 'local history' in their title. There is a long list to be found in The Family and Local History Handbook. New ones, and their websites, are often mentioned in Local History News. If your group is considering having its own website those listed here may provide some examples.'

'Most of the activities beekeepers enjoy are run at local associations. These include; lectures, open-air summer apiary meetings, courses, parties, quizzes, auctions, etc. Members of these associations pay subscriptions which gives them a voice and a vote in their association affairs. From the subscription, a capitation fee is paid annually to the BBKA and those combined fees are the only reliable income received by the national body. The BBKA holds a comprehensive list of member associations detailed by UK County.'
