The Bees and Seas team are celebrating ‘National Bee day’ with a series of family fun events this summer. Please do come along and take part.
Bees and Seas is a local project born from a common passion to connect communities with nature, across the land and sea. Three community enterprises: We Are FoodPioneers CIC, Friends of Brooklands Park and Creative Waves CIC, have come together to create a community beekeeping project and educational training space in Brooklands Park.
The mission is to help engage the local community with conservation and pollinators through a series of collaborative activities, workshops and volunteering opportunities. Local volunteers have been working hard to transform this industrial site into a natural asset and the Worthing Honey Collective have been busy preparing our Honey Bees for onward delivery to their new home at the Brooklands Apiary.
None of this would have been possible without the vital funding, grants, sponsorships and donations received! We are very grateful to the South Downs National Park Trust, Postcode Local Trust, the Sussex Transport team, Rampion Fund Sussex Community Foundation, Worthing Community Chest and Worthing and Sompting Lions for their incredibly generous donations.
Come and celebrate National Bee Day on 21st August. The theme this year is building back better for bees: focusing on actions for restoring, supporting and enhancing the role of these pollinators. Bees and Seas are hosting a series of FREE family fun activities, shows, talks and stalls at Brooklands Park from Friday 20th August through to Sunday 22nd August.
TTW will have a stall at the event on the Saturday 21st Aug, so do come and say hello or even help man the stall if you’d like to!
