A fabulous fun day was had by all so thank you to everyone for coming along and both entering and supporting the event. There were 90 entries ( just 10 short of the magic blue ribbon) and a further improvement from last year.
We had a steady stream of people dropping in during the day buying honey and beeswax products as well as chatting, picking up bee information and having lovely honey scones to boot. We had several new beekeepers starting the course in January dropping in to find out more and two young beekeepers entering (a beautiful dress and some tasty fudge) which was lovely to see. We have also had a few people asking about the bee keeping course as a result of Saturday, which is also good news.
Jack judged the entries and there was lots of medium to dark honey this year. ( I am reliably told it was due to the large amount of blackberries due to our lovely summer)
Attached the results and we look forward to a bigger and better event next year hosted by Newton Abbot.
Finally a big thank you!
None of this is possible without the enthusiasm of everyone with you all willing to have a go.
