The Newbury Show

This year, first time in three years, there was a Newbury Show we took our bee stall. We have put some work into upgrading the stall with a our new hive display unit - which Ben made himself.

It was wonderful to see the show running again and it was very well supported by the public - especially on the Saturday when we had people talking to us nearly constantly.

Our honey soaps went down very well - we will have more batches before Christmas including a new honey and orange scent. We also sold out of candles on the first day so will be producing some more before the Christmas markets!

The Newbury and District Beekeepers ran a honey show with lots of classes for honey, wax and beekeeping related activities. Across the honey and the wax classes we won 7 1st-3rd place certificates - the highlight of which was 2nd in the open runny honey category.

Our next jobs are to get the summer honey crop extracted and jarred and then to prepare for the national honey show!
