Bee Day - a Hive of Activity!
Whitefriars Square will be a hive of activity again on 21 September as we join forces with the Canterbury Beekeepers Association to stage another ‘Bee Day’.
Whitefriars Bee Day will feature information displays on bees as well as an opportunity to view a live hive and try on a bee suit. There will be expert advice by members of the Canterbury Beekeepers Association on beekeeping, which has seen a steady increase in interest locally since we located two beehives on its shop roofs last Autumn. On sale, and to sample, will be Canterbury honey! And there will be face-painting for the kids!
Copies of the Whitefriars-sponsored bee book, To Be A Bee, will also be available to purchase. We will also be giving away packets of bee-friendly wild flower seeds on the day.
