Another Blue Ribbon Trophy for the Sleaford Honey Show

Sleaford Honey Show was held on Saturday 3rd November at the Caythorpe Village Hall.  With 120 entries in 21 classes the Judge, Alan Woodward, was able to award us a Blue Ribbon.

Our Chairman performed his usual magic and won the trophy for most points and also best exhibit in show for a beautiful block of wax.  New members also had considerable success with four trophies being won by new members.  Full details are available the 2018 honey show page.
