Bob Maurer, National Honey Show Committee Chair said:
“This year’s National Honey Show is a credit to a century of enthusiasm by our dedicated team of volunteers and visitors. We want to share with you the upbeat zest and excitement which characterises the show, welcome new visitors to come along to share the experience, and lead the way to an ever bigger and better show over the next 100 years.”
