Instructions for October 2023

We are delighted to inform you all that we have the renowned Honey Judge, Enid Brown coming up to judge our Honey Show this year. It is a great opportunity to get feedback on your honey and I am sure we will have lots of questions for her at the show on 4th October.

We have revised some of the classes for the Honey Show, mainly relating to the novice categories. Many of the classes require the showing of two identical jars of honey but we felt that this can be hard for novice beekeepers so we have added the option to enter with a single 1lb jar for novices. The points gained in the Novice classes will be those which count towards the Novice Cup. Novices are also welcome to enter the normal categories too but two jars are required for those.  

We have also added a candle class and as ever, there is a lot to be learned about good candle making. Hopefully a good number of you will give this a go! 

Have a read of the categories so you know what you are going to enter. The Honey Show will begin at 7.30pm on 4th October when we get access to the main room at St Clement's Hall but Elsbeth and I will be starting to register your entries from 6.30pm in the smaller room. There is very little space to wait but we will try to get this done as quickly as possible. You will receive a random number for each of our entries which will be recorded against your name, before displaying the entries. There should be no form of identification on the entry.

Compiled and updated (changes relate to classes available for Novices) - August 2023
