2015 National Honey Show Report

Well done to all the members who won prizes at the show this year, winning anything this year was even harder with very nearly 2000 exhibits a record amount this year, & a lot more from different countries this year than ever. we had 15 Essex members entering which is a lot more than in the past, so its nice to see a few very new members having a go so don’t be put off if you did not win this year, next year might be your year. Paul Abbott won both the Essex cups & 5 of the 7 Kent cups as he is a full member of Kent beekeepers as well so very well done Paul. Their was a lot of new Names & faces collecting cups this year. the show was in a new part of the college with exhibits in different rooms, the judges liked it as it gave them more room to work in.
