Bee Events in Bristol

There are two free Bee events taking place in Bristol in May 2011:

On Sunday 8th May 2-5pm there is a  Bee Fair to be held at St John's Burial Ground, Cotswold Road, Bristol. This collaboration between the Windmill Hill Community Orchard Association and Safe Land for Bees celebrates the launch of Beelines on Windmill Hill, building the first bee sanctuary on Windmill Hill.

Members of the Bristol Sustainable Beekeeping Group (our sister group) will be on hand extolling the virtues of sustainable beekeeping. Also there will be representatives from Safe Land For Bees, Bees Abroad, Windmill Hill Community Orchard Association, Bees and Trees, and Bristol Beekeepers Association, as well as a contingency of local artists from BV Studios.

Also, on Saturday 21st May 2-5pm the second Bee Day is being held at St. Matthews Church Kingsdown.

YABeeP have again been invited to speak at this community event held as part of the Kingsdown project to introduce feral bees to the heart of Bristol. It is also hoped that Simon will repeat his fantastic Plants and Wild Bees talk he gave to our 9th April YABeeP meeting.

Avon Wildlife and the Bristol Bat Group will also be represented plus the RSPB talking about what to grow in our gardens for birds.

This was a brilliant day last year and we anticipate this one to be bigger and better - be there or be square!.
