2017 Holsworthy Branch Honey Show

Saturday 4 November 2017

Entries may be staged from 8.45 am, judging starts at 10.00 am

Holsworthy Memorial Hall, Manor Car Park, North Road, Holsworthy, EX22 6DJ (map)

The honey show will be held in the small hall at the same time as the Holsworthy Craft Fair is held in the main Memorial Hall

Classes for novices

Again there will be four classes with entry restriced to those members who have never won a first prize at a honey show. There are three novice classes for honey where the emphasis is on honey taste and aroma and although presentation will be taken into account, especially looking at clean, full jars and lack of foreign bodies, perfect presentation will not be required.

The novice class for a wax block will be judged on wax quality and perfect presentation will not be required.
