Held at the Felthorpe Pavilion, the President’s Evening is the event in the NBKA calendar where trophies and other awards are presented to winners of the summer and autumn honey shows.
Guests were greeted with mulled wine and other drinks on entry, and had an opportunity to mingle before the event. Paul Metcalf, President of the NBKA, opened the evening, and acted as quizmaster on a broad range of beekeeping topics. Excellent food had been donated by many members, and a line of eager attendees with empty plates was formed.
The many trophies and shields of the association were awarded after the quiz had concluded, followed by announcements and certificates for BBKA examination successes.
