Kinross Agricultural Show

Saturday 8th August turned out to be a fine day for those stewarding the Scottish Beekeepers' Association display marquee at the Kinross Agricultural Show. The show was moved from the grounds of Kinross House and has been located by Vane Farm RSPB centre the past few years. The event was well attended and there was a lot of interest in the beekeeping display and observation hive. A dedicated team of Fife and Dunfermline association members ensured that all went smoothly and questions from the public were answered.

Martin Kay (Fife Beekeepers' Association) and Enid Brown (Association President) face the public in buoyant mood at the Kinross Agricultural Show. It is not unusual for this show to have rain but this year was a pleasant change which helped to keep spirits up!
