Heckington Show - 27th and 28th July

Sleaford Beekeepers will have a large stand the Heckington Show.  This is our major annual contact with the public.  To do this we need the help of members to set up the display, talk to people, demonstrate or simple chat.  If you could offer a couple of hours or more on the Friday pm or on Saturday or Sunday please let our Chairman know.

There will be an organising meeting on Wednesday the 10th July in the Wagon and Horses, Caythorpe staring at 7.30 please attend if you can.

The Heckington Show includes a small honey show with just 10 different classes to enter.  There are also a plethora of other competitions from Photograph to Baking.  The schedule and entry forms are available on their website.  If you enter 15 entries across the show you get a free ticket for each day of the show.
