West Cornwall Beekeepers’ Association
Membership application form


West Cornwall Beekeepers Association will maintain your personal details, as provided by you for your membership, your name, address and email for the purpose of keeping records and keeping members informed of relevant events and activities, Details of full members will automatically be passed to the BBKA as part of their records of all registered, partner, county and junior beekeepers and to BDI to provide cover for your bee disease insurance and other third parties who manage part of your membership subscription e.g. Beebase, Beecraft etc. In certain circumstances information may be passed to any other relevant authority (Bee Inspector). Please note that if we do not receive your consent we are unable to process your data and we will not be able to maintain your membership.

Both BBKA and BDI require Full Members’ details, including name, address and membership number. Please note that your name, address and other contact details will NOT be passed to BeeBase to register you there, although you may be sent an invitation to register. BeeBase is the National Bee Unit’s online database and responsible members should register themselves with BeeBase to ensure that they can receive notifications of any threatened outbreak that may affect their colonies. Registration with BeeBase means that in the event of a notifiable disease close to your location you will receive notification as soon as the outbreak is confirmed, not being registered means your colonies could be put at risk.


WCBKA Online Yearbook

In addition to sharing your data with BBKA, your details will be included in WCBKA’s yearbook which is hosted within WCBKA’s secure webpage.

Gift Aid

Gift Aid is reclaimed by the charity from the tax you pay for the current tax year. Your address is needed to identify you as a current UK taxpayer.

By ticking Yes, I confirm that I have paid, or will pay, an amount of Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax for this tax year (6 Apr to 5 Apr) that is at least equal to the amount of tax that all charities or Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs) that I donate to will reclaim on my gifts for this tax year. I understand that other taxes, such as VAT and Council Tax, do not qualify. I understand the charity will reclaim 25p on every £1 that I give.
