HELP NEEDED FOR THE NORTH SOMERSET AGRICULTURAL SHOW ON BANK HOLIDAY MONDAY, 7 MAY 2018

North Somerset Beekeepers runs a stall at this show each year to showcase bees and beekeeping.  Members of North Somerset Beekeepers are available to share their knowledge with the public.  There is an observation hive, virtual hive, a beekeeping display, and candle and badge making for the children.  We sell honey from members and this is a very popular part of the attraction.

In addition, we run a Honey Show on behalf of the North Somerset Agricultural Show which is judged by our very own David Capon.  Here is a link to the rules and schedule of the honey show:  http://www.nsas.org.uk/bees-honey/

It would be great if as many of you as possible could enter something, even if it is just a honey cake or biscuits, as this is our showcase to the world.  The person scoring the most points in the show will not only be presented with the Hans Wilson Perpetual Honey Cup but also a prize of £25 kindly donated again this year by Hans.

Our display is hugely popular and it is great fun to man the stalls and chat to the general public.

Helpers We are looking for helpers to man the stall during the day.   You would only need to help out for a 2 hour slot and as a reward you receive a free ticket for the Agricultural show.

The slots on 7 May run from 9 to 11, 11 to 1, 1 to 3 and 3 to 5.

Some of you have already volunteered, for which I am grateful, but we still need more names.  So if you have done it before, and know how much fun it is, or if you have never helped out before, we need you.  Even if you have only just entered the world of beekeeping , you still have a lot to offer.  Come along and help.  If you don’t think that you know a lot, you will soon find out how much more you know than the general public!

We also need some help on the previous day, Sunday, 6 May at 4.00pm to assist in setting up the exhibit and to help clear up after the show has finished on the Monday.

Selling honey  Finally if you wish to sell honey at the Show please let me know.  North Somerset Beekeepers requires a 25% commission on honey sold, which is reduced to 10% if you help out on the day, and/or enter into one of the Honey Show classes.
