After a break of two years, due to the Covid 19 pandemic, the Fife Show was finally able to go ahead in May 2022. The event was a ticketed event, which enabled the organisers to gauge the number of people attending and thus ensure there was ample space for a socially distanced event. This didn’t seem to deter anybody from attending and the show was very busy all day.
It was so lovely to actually be at a ‘live’ event again. engaging with members of the public and talking to interested parties about everything related to bees.
The observation hive proved a great hit with both children and adults alike, children are so fascinated to see live bees and they ask great questions too. Children are now being taught about bees and their importance to our environment and the effective production of food in school lessons, this is great news.
Not only was it great to engage with the public again, it was also lovely to see fellow beekeepers ‘in the flesh’, after a very long time only seeing them virtually!
The Fife Beekeepers Stand was busy all day, with lots of information and displays for everyone to read. Thank you to everyone who visited the stand and a big thank you to all those members who gave up their time to man the stand and also to Enid for providing the observation hive.
