Can you help make it a bee-friendly summer?

AT THE start of 2020, inspired by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council leader Richard Burton, The Gazette launched its Bee Happy Campaign. We are inviting any group, school, Brownies, Guides, Cubs or Scouts or youth group to get in touch. We wanted to hear what you are doing to make your school or public place more bee-friendly. It came after East Riding Council changed planting proposals to encourage more bees at two highway improvement schemes after a request from school children. Since the 2020 has taken a different turn, but even though we are not free of the coronavirus pandemic there are still bees out there. In fact, on Monday Burton Constable Hall tweeted: “We introduced a new queen bee to the hive last week. Tomorrow (Tuesday) now that the bees have got to know her.”
