Chester Grosvenor Shopping centre hopes to make Chester the most bee-friendly City in the UK!
The #BEEfriendlyCHESTER campaign will launch on 27th July with a series of family-friendly events to educate shoppers and city visitors on the country’s worrying decline in wild bees. The centre promises to be a hive of activity throughout the summer holidays, with bee-friendly activities every day until 1st September.
Shoppers are invited to take part in live hive workshops, scuttlebee kids play zone, honeycomb ball pit, bee-friendlly reading zone and local bee keepers education demonstrations to learn about the humble honeybee and its remarkable contribution to our environment. Visitors will also be able to take a bag of wild flower seed confetti to plant (available free at the #BEEfriendlyCHESTER information point in the centre).
A specially commissioned giant 6ft bee sculpture by local artist, Faith Bebbington, will be located in the heart of the shopping centre and surrounded by flowers created by local schools Boughton Heath Academy and Barrow Primary and Mill View Primary schools.
