Stewarding at the 2022 National

The Chief Steward at the National Honey Show is looking for volunteers to assist in stewarding during the three days (27th – 29th October) of this prestigious event in the Beekeeping calendar

Helpers are also being sought with the setup on Wednesday 26th and closing down on the afternoon & evening of Saturday 29th October.

Perhaps you were one of many Reigate members providing help in 2021. If you would like to volunteer again or perhaps for a first time this year, please apply using the ‘Stewards Request form 2022’ below to let Bill Fisher know which days, mornings or afternoons you would be available to help.
