Shropshire Beekeepers' Association
The biggest event of our year is the Shrewsbury Flower Show, which takes place in the Quarry Park in Shrewsbury early in August every year. There is a major display of bee products, with competitive classes for honey, mead, beeswax items and so on. Bees can be seen in the Observation Hive and there is often a chance to watch demonstrations by beekeepers of their skills. The best honey from all over the County is also available to taste and/or buy. The 2014 Show will take place on the 8th & 9th August. More details will be published in due course.
In addition, every year the Shropshire Beekeepers Association also takes part in activities and displays run by other organisations. We sometimes have products for sale. If you would like to discuss having us take part in your event during 2014 please contact our Public Liaison Officers, Paul & Sandy Herbert - contact details on the Committee page).
