Under 18s at Events

WBK welcomes the attendance of under 18s at our events but due to child protection requirements WBK requires that either a guardian or parent also attends.  If a child is attending an event without their parent or legal guardian, but with another guardian (e.g friend of the family) WBK requires a letter from the legal guardians/parents confirming that the other party is acting as the guardian of the child at the WBK event.

Photography and Video taking at WBK Events

Please note that photographs and footage may be taken at Weybridge Beekeepers apiary, winter and other meetings. These may be used by Weybridge Beekeepers and Surrey Beekeepers Association for marketing and publicity in their publications, on their websites and in social media or in any third party publication. Please contact: if you have any concerns or if you wish to be exempted from this activity.
