Two Somerset beekeepers have triumphed at their first outing to the National Honey Show.
Mark and Christine Gullick from Axbridge came first in two classes against very stiff competition from not just the UK but overseas.
Also they were awarded a prestigious trophy for their winning frame of honey comb suitable for extraction.
Somerset Beekeepers’ Association Chairman, Anne Pike, said: “Mark and Christine’s success is a tremendous achievement. They were up against some of the best beekeepers and most experienced exhibitors in the country.
“Their success is all the more special in light of a very difficult beekeeping season in Somerset when the average honey crop fell to its lowest level in decades.”
Mark and Christine Gullick have enjoyed great success at honey shows this year winning Best in Show at the Bristol Honey Show as well as many prize cards at the Royal Bath & West Show.
