A MAGICAL DAY AT THE ARUNDEL BEE PROJECT’S QUEEN BEE DAY
A swarm of buzzy bees propelled this year’s Arundel Queen Bee day along on a breeze of magic, art, laughter and storytelling for kids of all ages!
Raising awareness of the work of the The Arundel Bee Project
and the volunteers who form the Arundel Green Team
, the day was all about a celebration of bees and pollinators, along with advice and education on how to reverse their decline.
All set up for the Arundel Bee Project's Queen Bee Day 2023!
Volunteer ‘worker bees’ handed out free wildflower seeds to help others sow their own patch of wildflowers. The observation hive and Arundel Bee Project stall provided an opportunity to chat to the project’s leaders for anyone wanting to delve deeper into how they can get involved. There was also local honey on sale direct from the Bee Project’s community apiary as well as other preserves.
Goody bags and maps for The Arundel Bee Trail
were on sale – visitors can continue to enjoy this family friendly trail to find the bees and their hidden letters around town. On sale from Arundel Museum
until the end of the Festival on 28 August – £2.50 cash.
Everyone also got the chance to join in with a fancy dress parade, judged by the Mayor of Arundel, Councillor Tony Hunt, with prizes kindly donated by Katie from The book nook corner – Independent Usborne Organiser
! Congratulations to our two winners and everyone who entered.
All in all a buzz-y day which was a big ‘hoot’ for everyone who was involved! Thanks to all our amazing volunteers for making the day happen!
