Killerton Apple Festival

Beekeepers from our own Tiverton Branch and from Exeter Branch joined together to provide and steward a Honey Bees Marquee at the Killerton Apple Festival over the weekend of the 12th & 13th October. Our show display was centre stage with displays about both branches at the sides. Exeter provide an observation hive so all we needed was good weather. Unfortunately the sun didn’t shine and it was wet and windy at times. However that didn’t deter us nor the general public. We had two busy days and, as usual, people were fascinated to see and hear about the honey bee.

Thanks to all our members and those from Exeter who made the weekend a success.
