Honey Show 2020 – CANCELLED

Words by
Carole Finlay
Show Secretary

It is with great regret that I have to tell you that our Honey Show which was to be held in September has had to be cancelled due to the Covid 19 Virus Regulations. Your committee has come to this decision after a great deal of thought, it was not taken lightly. Enfield & District Beekeepers have held honey shows for very many years, in fact, one of our Trophies dates back to 1937!  

With the regulations we would not be able to do Candle Rolling or Badge Making. We would not be able to hold it inside at our usual venue and we felt that in the setting up of our stands we would not be able to conform with the current regulations and keep our members safe.  

We will have a fantastic Show in 2021. All you new Beekeepers will enter and give us oldies a run for our money! In the meantime, look after your ‘GIRLS’ & keep safe.
