BEE-KEEPERS will host their annual Inverness Honey Show in Simpson's Garden Centre on Saturday 11 and Sunday September 12.

This year's honey judge will be Enid Brown who will work through all of the exhibits in the morning of September 11, before it is opened to the public.

Barbara Sandbach, secretary to the Inverness-shire Beekeepers Association, said: "It's not just honey that is judged, but other hive products - beeswax, mead, honey cake and tablet.

"This year, we have included two new photography categories, either colour or black and white, so it will be fascinating to see what images people have captured.

"We accept the entries on Friday afternoon or Saturday morning before the judging starts."

After the judging is complete, the show is open to the public, from 1pm until 5pm on Saturday, and from 10am until 4pm on Sunday.

"Many of our members choose to take this opportunity to sell their honey at the show, so we will have a variety of local natural honey, blossom, heather, runny, set, creamed or cut comb, as well as wax candles for sale" she added.
