    The Bungay Community Bee Group (BCB) as well as keeping bees
    helps with education and engagement. The Bungay Bee Hive Day on Sunday
    24th July is the biggest outreach event BCB have organised so far. At
    this celebration of ‘all things bee’ with there will be a full
    programme of talks, walks and ongoing activities for adults and
    children, with a focus on insect pollination, biodiversity and what
    each of us can do to help restore balance in our overstretched
    environment.

    There will be something for everyone: visit the central observation
    hive with live bees, the display of our recent venture into top bar
    hives and the stalls selling bee-friendly plants and honey. Learn how
    to make bug hotels and beeswax candles.

    Come and listen (and talk) to the guest speakers from the River of
    Flowers project (who plant ‘urban meadows’ to help bees,
    butterflies and hoverflies find forage in cities) and the Natural
    Beekeeping Trust (who explore beekeeping on an earth-friendly scale).
    Or hear about the healing power of honey.

    On the bee and flower walk you’ll visit a variety of ‘green
    spaces’ in Bungay (including the burgeoning Library Courtyard
    Community Garden) on the lookout for the wild (and not so wild)
    flowers that the bees are visiting.

    Throughout the day you’ll be able to talk to Bungay Community
    Beekeepers about all our activities and even join the group if you
    haven’t yet subscribed.

    Oh, and calling all bakers. If you bake and bring along a honey cake
    and enter it into the competion, you could win a £15 gift voucher
    from Humble Cake.
