Annual PBKA Honey Show – Saturday 17th September 2016

Just to remind all members that the annual PBKA Honey Show is this Saturday 17th September 2016 at the Visitor’s Centre, Scolton Manor. As you enter the main gate at Scolton, turn left and follow the road down to the Visitor’s Centre pay and display car park.

The centre will be open shortly after 9am and your entries should be available for staging by 10am to allow the judging to start promptly at 11am.

Note that the next day, Sunday 18th September, the final apiary meeting of the season will be held at the Pembrokeshire Beekeeping Centre at Scolton Manor for both beginners and improvers groups, so if you have any queries for the team or would like to share a story, please bring them along.

Please note also that you don’t have to put in an entry to come along to the Honey Show and we would be delighted to see you if you just want to have a look at the entries or fancy a chat over what is likely to be a very busy weekend!

If you have any queries in the meantime, please contact the Apiary Manager on pbkaapiarymanager@live.co.uk

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!
