Please join us next month on Saturday April 9 from 10am to 12pm at the Stable Block, Holywells Park where we will be creating a wildflower patch in the park to create much needed food and shelter for bees.
Since 1900 the UK has lost 20 species of bee and since 1945 we have lost 97% of wildflower rich meadows, with this decline still happening at an alarming rate.
Sessions are £2 per child and accompanying adults are free. We hope to see you there.
