Honey Show 2016
Now's the time to be thinking about your entries for
the JBKA Honey Show, taking place this year in conjunction with the Cider Festival
at Hamptonne on 8th/9th October.
with the Annual Dinner & Prize Giving on the evening of Saturday 8th October
at Lacerta, Les Ormes, St Brelade.
However, please note the following, regarding attendance at recent events...
Sunday 18th September...only 11 members turned up
Friday 23rd September...only 9 members turned up
these events were organised for you, the general members,
but most of those that attended these events were officers of the association.
So those who stood up at the AGM and complained about a lack of events please take note,
and ask yourself this question "how many JBKA events have I attended this year"..?
so why not attend the Annual Dinner & Prize Giving
so far only 12 people have returned their menu choices and payment to the Secretary..!
For further information email email@example.com
If any JBKA member is prepared to provide a location for an apiary visit please advise the Secretary
The Jersey Beekeepers Association runs one set of 5 theory classes in early spring
each year before active beekeeping usually starts. Time, weather and other conditions permitting,
we also try to hold at least one Practical, hands-on (gloved of course) session at an
apiary or two in the summer and give advice to those fortunate enough to have acquired bees.
We can also advise on mentors to call for help when the bees don't behave as
they're "supposed" to - after all, they do not read all the books about beekeeping!!!
Please contact Judy Collins (JBKA Education Officer) to add your name to the list for any future classes and for any queries... email "firstname.lastname@example.org
