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!

From 1.00 pm until 4.00 pm the display will be open for the public to sample and buy honey, view the range of exhibits, try their hand at making rolled candles and see live honeybees from behind the safety of a sheet of glass.

 

Beekeepers will be on hand to talk to and to answer questions about our craft.

Entrance is free and light refreshments will be available throughout the afternoon.

Come and join us!  Association Members have been sent a schedule and it can also be viewed and downloaded by clicking here.
