Count Down to the Sleaford Honey Show

Sleaford Beekeepers won a silver medal certificate at the 151st Heckington show. A big thanks to all the members who helped out in many different ways. A series of pictures are posted on our Facebook page.

If you are one of our new friends who visited our stall and are wondering what to do next you may want to consider one of your open monthly meetings. Even if the topic seems a bit advanced you are sure of a friendly welcome in convivial surroundings.

Next local event is the Sleaford Honey Show on Saturday 3rd November.
