Bees

On behalf of Shipston Beekeepers Association:

Shipston Beekeepers will be taking our stand to three local shows this summer to help inform the public about the importance of bees in the environment and encourage others interested in taking up the craft of beekeeping.  In addition, each of the shows has a honey show with many classes for you to enter. Finally, we will have members’ honey for sale on the stands. If you could help set up, man or dismantle the stands your help would be appreciated. Please see below details of each event and who to contact to offer your help or honey for sale.
