The National Honey Show was held 21st to 23rd November at Sandown Park Racecourse, Esher, Surrey. There were just over 1400 entries, which is down by about 1000 from 2019, but everyone was delighted to be back and good to catch up socially. My position there is Judges Referee and this involves appointing the judges, allocating the classes they have to judge and being available to sort out any problems. Fortunately, all were easy to remedy. It’s not just a honey show, there are lots of trade stands, lectures and workshops. I’ve posted a few photos below which might encourage some members to attend next year.
Congratulations must go to Jo Ramsay, DWF, for winning class 40 with her shallow frame of heather honey and congratulations also to Joyce Nisbet, SBA member, for first prize with her display.
