Lots happening at the Horticultural Show this year, inside and out and down at the river…..
For the first time the Kit Hill group of the Cornwall Beekeepers Association had a stand at the Golberdon Horticultural Show on the 18th August. The display included bee identification, plants for bees and honey tasting. Geoff and Mary Hardman, (Chair and Secretary of Kit Hill CBKA respectively) cajoled passers-by to try honeys of six distinct flavours – all dependent on what the bees had foraged for. Dale Wood brought along his observation hive which proved very popular with visitors trying to spot the queen.
