I think it is safe to say that our visit to the Edgehead Village Day yesterday afternoon was successful in allowing us to promote bee conservation along with the art and craft of beekeeping, raise our profile in the area and generate income for the association.
Our stall was "buzzing" throughout the afternoon with the observation hive and honey tasting drawing visitors in. Young and old alike were fascinated with the bees in the observation hive and many questions were asked by our visitors and answered by the NBA team at the event. (Martin V, Rosemary M, Helen N, Tim P, Annette E and ME) Three types of honey were on offer for our visitors to taste and the Newbattle honey was a very useful point of sale promotional tool.
Lorraine A and Ewan M helped behind the scenes, thank you both.
Our sales during the afternoon were steady throughout, and we ended the day with a total of £455.20.
Thank you one and all.
