Well done to the organisers, competitors and sponsors of this years West Awake Honey show, which took place last Saturday in the GAA centre of Excellence Bekan, and hosted by Ballyhaunis Beekeepers Club under the guidance of Moy Valley Bees very own Peter Neary. Peter had several meetings with Halyna and Teresa in the run up to the event, so that there would be a smooth handover of its administration and paperwork, to the Ballyhaunis club, as it was their first time hosting it while the previous 5 shows were hosted by Ballina.  Next year we are delighted to hear that Westport will play host to this ever popular event, and I have no doubt that better it will get with a fresh outlook from Monica and her team there.  And so it is fitting that all are represented in this photograph.  Don't they all look so very much in control?  That is the result of great team work, team spirit and a great venue.  As a result, there were lots of entries from near and far, committed sponsors, esteemed speakers, beautiful artwork from local school children and widespread public support,  all of which added to the day. Roll on 2019.
