Thank you to everyone for helping to make the 2018 Melplash Show such a success. We had a lot of entries and as you can see an impressive display of honey was delivered for Suzette Perkins to judge.
We were pleased to have Richard Norman, President of the Dorset Beekeepers Association, to present the prizes.
Congratulations to Carole Astbury for winning a number of trophies, including the Blue Ribbon of Merit for the best exhibit in the show. Her plate of matching heart shaped wax pieces was a work of art… and must have taken hours of work to prepare.
Stephanie Rowse was awarded with the County Novice Trophy as well as the M R Wood Challenge Cup.
We were delighted that a frame ready for extraction from the WDBKA Apiary won its class … well done to all!
There was a constant flow of people through the marquee and a lot of interest in the observation hives and information table. The Honey Cakes seemed as busy as ever and the Honey Sales table did a roaring trade.
The Melplash Show is an excellent showcase for WDBKA… it’s a brilliant opportunity to share our knowledge and promote our love of bees and Beekeeping.
Thank you for your support … see you all again next year!
