Great turnout at the Honey Show and Honeybee Exhibition!

There was a great turnout at the annual Honey Show and Bee Exhibition at The Picton Centre, Haverfordwest on Saturday. Thanks to all of you who came to exhibit, or just join in the fun and have a chat! It was good to see so many families, with the youngsters all showing a great interest whether at the observation hive spotting the queen, rolling candles, or sampling some of the delicious honey that was on offer. We also had a number of people come in during the afternoon session to find out about joining the association and getting involved in our fascinating craft.

Congratulations to all the prize winners and all the other entrants who had made such a huge effort to make the day a success!
