The Beekeepers at NSAS, Wraxall

The Spring Bank Holiday was a busy one for our Branch as you can see from these pictures. We had a larger area to fill as 2015 was the 1st North Somerset Honey Show and we had some bright yellow T-shirts to show off. Our very own Annabel Lewis was the first-ever winner of the Hans Wilson Trophy Cup, with Alison Fisher in 2nd place and David Hounsell 3rd. As ever the obs hive was very popular and drew in the public who went on to look at our new posters and ask loads of questions. Our recent purchase of a badge-making machine also proved to be popular with the kiddies visiting the stand and everyone enjoyed tasting the honey!

(Note to self: buy a wipe-able tablecloth for next year!)

We sold all the honey, ran out of wax for the candle-rolling, drank copious cups of tea & coffee (thanks Lynn!) and just got everything packed away at the end of the day as it started to rain. My thanks to all who helped make it a success!
