February 2018 Newsletter

Plans are well underway for the National Honey Show being held at the inspiring location at Sandown Park, Esher on October 25th-27th this year.

The National Honey Show will have a stand at the upcoming Beetradex event on March 3rd, so why not come along and find out more. We will have the flyer leaflets available for collection; and we can send these to you as pdfs. The raffle tickets will also be available for collection at Beetradex.

The main lecture programme this year will feature Michael Smith, winner of the lg Nobel Prize for his ability to make people laugh; and Clarence Collison, author of the book, "What Do You Know" and current author of the Bee Culture magazine column "A Closer Look”.

The Beginners Programme last year was a tremendous success and were hoping to build on that this year with an inspiring programme delivered by Lynfa Davies (Welsh Beekeepers), Anne Rowberry (Avon Beekeepers), Bob Smith (Kent Beekeepers) and Roger Patterson (Sussex Beekeepers).

Please come along to the National Honey Show stand at Beetradex, to find out more about the show, talk about the trade stand spaces that will be available this year, exhibiting in the many classes in the schedule and the extensive workshop programme.
