MBKA Events for 2017

A Past Event

The English Festival:
Saturday 23rd April 2016

Our thanks go to the members who helped set up and run our stall at the very successful English Festival held at the Riverside Country Park. We made over £200 for our funds!

The weather was kind to us and the event was very well attended. Honey sales were good and we very nearly sold out of wax products.

The hair dryer was used extensively throughout the day as a steady stream of children made their candles. As well as selling and making we also spent many happy hours engaged with the visitors. I am always surprised and delighted to see how interested people are when discussing the plight, and the various life cycles of bees. We also gathered the details of a number of potential new beekeepers and others who offered a home to our bees in their gardens and orchards.
