Latest updates from Preston & District Beekeepers

Honey Show

Congratulations to all those who received an award or a trophy at our 2022 Honey Show.

Over 40 people attended the day to show their exhibits which were judged by Ivor Flatman from Wakefield & listened to the talk given by Janet Murray on the history of honey & hive products in the local area.

It was also an opportunity to have some fun in our friendly competition to make the fastest frame (to BBKA standards of course), as well as to catch up with fellow beekeeping friends old & new over lunch & a cuppa.

As there were 116 exhibits at our show, the judge Ivor Flatman was able to present a Blue Riband Award for the Best Exhibit in the Show which is only given when there are over 100 exhibits. This prestigious award allows the recipient to exhibit at the 2022 National Honey Show at Sandown Park at the end of October.

Thank you to all those who helped out on the day, to those who exhibited & well done to everyone who received an award or a trophy.

You all made our local Honey Show an enjoyable & successful day.

Below is the list of the winners in each class together with winners of trophies.
