OBKA Out and About 2021

Blenheim Palace Flower Show 2021 - Friday 25th, Saturday 26th, Sunday 27th July 2021

 

 

We have attended the Blenheim Flower show for a number of years (see previous years' Out and About) and were delighted to be back this year.

 

This year The Blenheim Palace Flower show actively promoted the fact that Oxfordshire BeeKeepers Association were having a stand on their website - see https://www.blenheimflowershow.co.uk/visitor-info/show-info/

 

We had a number of  OBKA members who attended and assisted on the stand. We had our ever popular Observation Hive explaining the 3 castes of honey bee: queen, worker (female) and drone (male) bees. Peter Hawkins' flying Bee demonstrations was also a great draw.

 

This year the visitors were allowed in to the Flower Show in regulated sessions due to Covid restrictions. We still managed to draw a good crowd and our stand was very busy, especially with families and children.

 

Peter and Eric would like to thank all the volunteers who assisted over the 3 days and who answered all the questions from the public.

A fabulous event.
