The Sleaford Honey Show – smaller but still perfectly formed.

Sleaford Honey Show was held on Saturday 19 October at the Caythorpe Village Hall.  With 80 entries in 21 classes and Judged by Alan Woodward.

Our Chairman, Simon Croson, performed his magic as usual and won the trophy for most points and also best exhibit in show for a block of wax.  New members also had success with four new members winning place certificates.  Full details are available below followed by members photos.
