Heckington Show - Sleaford Beekeepers get Silver Gilt Certificate

Despite the weather (and the mud) SBKA had busy stand at the 152nd Heckington show.  There was plenty for members of the public to see and do.  We had live bees in an observation hive, badge making (mainly for children), honey tasting, displays, Asian Hornet information, Bee B'n'B kits (they weren't good enough to be hotels) and event a small flower garden.  Well done to ALL who contributed it was wonderful.  Plenty of pictures on our Facebook page.

Also thanks all our new (and a few old) friend who visited our stand.  If you are still wavering about keeping bees come along to one of our open meeting and find out more. Details above.  The Chairman's Report on the Heckington Show is published here.
