MBKA Events for 2019

A Past Event

The English Festival:
Saturday 21st April 2018

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. The weather was very kind to us. A lovely sunny day, we had no problems rolling wax candles this year. The footfall was well up on last year as the sun really brought people out.

The festival opened at 11am and closed at 5.30pm, a long but very enjoyable day. Honey and wax sales were slow to start but picked up to a steady flow by midday. At the end of the day there were very few jars to pack away.

Candle rolling was the usual steady stream and lasted all day. Such was the demand that we actually ran out of pre-waxed wick and had to call it a day at around 4pm. Candle rolling took just over £190, well up on last year.

We also gathered the names of quite a few interested people for next year’s Introductory Course  and answered a large number of the usual questions about bees, beekeeping and our Association. People were genuinely interested in the plight of the bees, particularly  following the weather events of the past month or so. In all a great day for us and the bees!

Our thanks go to Medway Council and their staff for all of their efforts on this one-day event.
