Again at the Stoneleigh showground, the county Honey Show will be held alongside three interesting lectures
Staging from 08.30, full details will be published nearer the time
This year we have three nationally recognized speakers; we expect the day will appeal to all our members, whether they are taking part in the Honey Show or simply looking to improve their beekeeping knowledge by learning from others.
The speakers we have arranged are:-
Professor Steve Martin, Salford University. A leading researcher with in-depth knowledge of the way varroa operate in our hives and the implications for beekeepers.
Gerry Collins, NDB. A very experienced beekeeper with practical advice for most of the beekeeping challenges we face.
Dr. Kirsty Stainton, Senior Scientist in Bee Health working with FERA. Kirsty will be sharing the latest information from CBPV research.
We also want to help those entering the Novice Classes at the Honey Show to get individual feedback on their entries. In a change to previous shows, the entrants will be offered the opportunity to attend the judging process so that they can hear directly about their entries from the Judge.
