Bee part of it!

Make sure you 'bee' part of a wildlife-loving event later this weekend

On Saturday (April 13) organisers will be offering a range of fun activities to promote a Bee Corridor, including face painting, arts and crafts, and making bee/bug hotels and seed bombs to throw in a specific area - the idea being that the seeds will grow into a patch of wildflowers for bees to enjoy.

Organisations due to take part include Love Letchworth, Hitchin Lavender, Letchworth Scout Group and local bee keepers.

Grounds maintenance contractor John O'Conner initiated a 'bee corridor' last year, to help bees buzz around more easily - you may have seen the cute bee logo in shop windows in the town, as pictured.

John said: "By increasing and joining up our bees' natural environment, we are helping this essential insect find the flowers they need to feed on and pollinate, find a mate and nesting site.

"Bees are fundamental to our ecosystem and we cannot afford to lose them."

Organisations due to take part on the day include Love Letchworth, Culturewood, Letchworth Scout Group – providing refreshments, and local bee keepers. 

Organisers add: "We would like to thank Bickerdikes Garden Centre, Tudor Environmental, Chilli Promotional Products and Hitchin Lavender for their kind donations to the project as well as Love Letchworth for their help and support and Elan Graphics and Line Print for providing posters."
