This year's County Honey Show, held as part of Taunton Flower Show on Friday and Saturday, attracted more competition entries, thousands of interested visitors and facilitated lots of bee-talk.
It was great to see entries from Exmoor, Minehead, Axbridge, Highbridge, Chard and even Devon, as well as from Taunton and the surrounding area. Over all entries were up by about 30 which made the competition stronger as well as giving a lot more exceptional exhibits to admire.
One of the youngest competitors was 19-year-old Jacob Trood (grandson of show vetran Neil!) who entered a fantastic array of artworks - one of which the judges recommended that he enter at the National Honey Show.
Thanks must again go to Taunton Division whose members staged, ran and then dismantled the hugely popular feature over a very hot couple of days.
