Honey pot lures swarm to show

SCHOOL children were lining up out the door at the bee and honey display yesterday to get a taste of some of the best home-grown sweetener on offer.

Honey steward Athol Craig and his helpers were busy bees indeed.

The record number of entries - 85 across the board - were judged by Daniel Jones of Cordalba and dominated by entries in the novice section, which means entrants who have never before won a prize, who took out the two main titles.

Kilkivan apiarist John Finney took out Champion Honey with his wild apple/brush box entry in the light honey class, and Sarah Bizzel of Wolvi was awarded Reserve Champion Honey for her outstanding entry.
