May's Open Meeting 

Our next meeting is on Tuesday 25th June at the Wagon and Horses, Caythorpe, starting at 7.30pm.  This is a change to the previously advertised topic and we will be mainly organising arrangements for our stand at the Heckington Show.  Our stand at Heckington has won two Gold certificates in the past three years.   It is our intention this year to promote the cause of wild bees this not just honey bees.  This is Sleaford Beekeeper's most important engagement with the pubic.  All members are requested to volunteer two or more hours during the show to help person the stand or to help set up the stand on the Friday evening.  Non-members are welcome as always.    A map is available here.

The show takes place on Saturday 27th & Sunday 28th July.  All members are encouraged to enter the honey show.  If you enter 15 entries across the show you get a free ticket of each day of the show.  The full show schedule is available for download here.

We have a proposed list of meetings on our calendar page.  These may be subject to changes due to absence etc. please double check here a few days before.

We have lots going on at Sleaford and welcome all levels of Beekeeper to come along and get involved, or just come along and get to know more about bees and beekeeping in a social environment.

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.
