Ashford Beekeeper’s Association is having their first “Ashford Honey Festival” on Saturday, the 23rd of September from 11am to 4pm at the community centre in Ashford village.
It will be opened by Minister Andrew Doyle. The guest speaker is Philip McCabe, the world beekeeping president. I’ve attended lectures by him and he is really entertaining and imformative.
The festival will highlight the plight of bees and demonstrate what we can do to help. There will be a children’s quiz and storytime too. There will be an observation hive on show so you can see the bees at work.
There will be honey tasting and honey for sale. Tea, coffee and cakes will be on offer to keep energy levels up. Bee friendly plants will be available to purchase.
There will be something for everyone and it will make for a very enjoyable day out.
