We organise an annual Honey Show, which takes place in September, in conjunction with the Findon Sheep Fair. Some of our members are involved with the ‘Bees and Honey’ Section of the South of England Show at Ardingly in June, as well as the National Honey Show held each October/November in London.
Various ‘One Day’ Conventions are held by Beekeeping Associations throughout the year, and for a modest fee we can hear speakers of national and international renown giving us the benefit of their knowledge and experience. The West Sussex Beekeepers Association organises a ‘Bee Market and Auction’ at Brinsbury College, near Pulborough in April each year when bees and second-hand equipment are auctioned.
When it comes to ‘processing’ the honey produced by your bees, there is no need to buy expensive equipment as we have a stock of quality equipment, which is available for members use free of charge! You will have to provide your own Honey Jars and Labels, though we can tell you where to get the best deals.
