The Huntingdonshire Food and Drink Festival came to a close at the weekend with a two-day honey show at Hinchingbrooke Country Park.

The event gave members of the public the chance to find out more about bees, honey and wax, including the chance to make candles.

The festival, organised by Huntingdonshire District Council and supported by The Hunts Post, has been hailed a huge success in its first year and there are hopes that the event will be repeated in 2008.
