Words from the Chairman

Welcome to the 84th National Honey Show. Look out for exciting changes this year. As I write we are still finalising plans with St George's College but the show will be located in a new building and we can say goodbye to the old draughty entrance. This means our primary car park will not be the one we have used for the past seven years so look out for the marshals who will direct you to the new parking area.

This year we welcome our new General Secretary John Hendrie. He has taken over from The Rev Francis Capener who served the show so well in this capacity for longer than most of us can remember. Francis is a patron of the show and has been an inspiration to many people including myself. He is still on the Executive Committee and we are lucky to have his wisdom available to us.

This year for the third time we will video our major lectures. These will be available via the show website, free of charge, to beekeepers worldwide. This is an expensive project and we are grateful to the Nineveh Trust for their generous support.

The show would not be what it is without the support of the trade and I'm pleased to say that demand for space is very strong. Do make sure you allocate some time for the trade hall – and bring your credit card!

All of us at the National Honey Show are grateful to our sponsor, the Worshipful Company of Wax Chandlers, for its support and to the team at St George's College for making us welcome. Of course there would be no show without one final ingredient – you!

Thank you for supporting the National Honey Show.
