During the three days of 6th, 7th & 8th of June, Reigate Beekeepers will be at The South of England Showground, Ardingly, West Sussex; along with fellow beekeepers from Beekeeping Associations throughout the South of England … to provide information about, and demonstrations of Beekeeping.
In the Bees & Honey tent you will find a variety of stalls selling a wide range of locally produced honey and wax products, crafts and beekeeping equipment. You will be able to sample fresh local honey and see honeybees in glass screened observation hives. There will also be live demonstrations of opening hives (in a secure outside area) for you to watch whilst seated inside the tent just how we inspect the colonies of bees. Two or three members of the public are also usually invited to join the beekeepers by the hives during the inspections … suitably booted and suited by the team beforehand of course.
For those who wish to learn more about beekeeping, there will be an information stand with details of local associations that can provide support and training.
If you are already a beekeeper, Paynes Southdown Bees will have a stall in the tent displaying and selling a wide range of beekeeping equipment and materials.
