Spring and Summer is a great time to help nature. Lots of bees are out now and they will be wanting to collect lots of nectar and pollen from beautifully coloured flowers and take it back to the hive for the Queen Bee so that there is food for the young ones.

Come a long to Thames Chase on Tuesday 28th and Wednesday 29th May, in the morning 10-12 and learn about bees and how to help them. There will be lots for you to do including:
Design a poster ‘How to Help Bees’; Paint a bumble bee using corks; make and decorate your own bee; plant seeds to attract bees and more.
