Celebrate National Bee Day with Bees & Seas

Posted on 27 July 2021

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!

SICK OF THE COST OF LIVING CRISIS? SICK ABOUT THE CLIMATE CRISIS? THEY ARE ONE CRISIS.

Today we are on the streets in London, prayerfully blocking the road outside parliament. We are taking a stand against a government who seems set on making life easier for millionaires & making the rest of us suffer.

If we don't act - who will?

Timeline photosThe 11th Assembly of The @worldcouncilofchurches in Karlsruhe, #Germany has called for support for #ecocidelaw as a new and strengthened form of ecological accountability.

The World Council of Churches is the world’s largest ecumenical organisation and the Assembly is held every eight years. The statement calls for metanoia; a transformative change of heart and mind. It determines that the narrow anthropocentric understanding of our relationship with Creation must be revised to a whole of life understanding.

We really never know quite what were going to have to repair but our wonderful volunteers are always ready to rise to the challenge each month and do an incredible job, bearing in mind mostly they only have an hour for each repair (and we were really busy)! Theres also drinks and cake available while you wait.

Taking bookings now for the next one on Saturday October 29th.

I'm sure it's staring me in the face, but how do I book please? 🤔

Don't forget to mention how good the coffee and cakes are 😋 ☕

Due to some pretty fierce winds in the past week, the runner beans have taken a bit of a hammering so enter the rescue team!

Theyre still producing loads though...
