Well done to our entrants. We had 14 entries and picked up 8 tickets – a fantastic achievement!

Congratulations to:

Linda Robertson

2nd – 2 jars soft set blossom honey
2nd – honey tablet
3rd – 2 jars medium honey

Shivani Rinck

3rd – 2 rolled decorated candles
3rd – needlework/artistic/decorative exhibit relating to beekeeping

George Smith

3rd – model or sculpture made from beeswax

Western Galloway Beekeepers’ Association

3rd – local association display of honey, beeswax, home produced products containing honey and/or beeswax – the theme was Ancient Egypt

Bearing in mind that we are a small association competing with others with far more experience of Royal Highland Show competitions we can be very proud of ourselves.

Thanks to all involved for great ideas, hard work and, above all, FUN.

Thanks to everyone who gave it a go.

The exhibits will be on display at our Open Day – The Wonder of Honeybees – on Sunday 22nd July at Glen of Luce Hall, Auchenmalg. Put the date in your diary and watch out for more details – all welcome!
