Hampshire Beekeepers’ Association held a Honey Show on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th October 2019 at Hilliers Arboretum, Romsey.
Our bees have had a busy summer and we have harvested their surplus honey and wax. The wonderful display of more than 250 items was open to the public after 13:30 on Saturday and experienced beekeepers were on hand to answer questions.
We also had several displays and attractions including beekeeping history, honey extraction, books, candle rolling; and of course tables with lots of delicious honey to buy, direct from the bees and beekeepers of Hampshire.
We were delighted to welcome The Countess Mountbatten of Burma on Sunday, 20th October at Hillier’s Arboretum circa 15:30 to present our awards.
