Osbaldwick School Children Buzzing Over Bee Help

Hugh Bayley and Bee Campaigner 180113

4:51pm 10th July 2014

As part of its Bee Friendly campaign, David Wilson Homes has donated seeds and planting equipment to pupils at Osbaldwick Primary School in York to help save the local population of bees. The local housebuilder, which is investing locally as part of its Derwenthorpe development, has also launched a competition with the pupils to design a bee hotel – with the winner being awarded their very own bee hotel for their garden. 

Clare Reaney, Sales Manager for David Wilson Homes, commented:

Our Bee Friendly campaign has been designed to help support the local environments and communities surrounding our developments. The local pupils have been very enthusiastic indeed, and we are thrilled with the fantastic designs they have created. We’re looking forward to seeing the plants and bees thriving in our community.

A recent report by the British Beekeeping Association (BBKA) found that honeybee colonies are in decline due to the recent bad British weather David Wilson Homes is supporting BBKA in its quest to help the decline of the honeybee by encouraging local children to get involved in planting bee friendly plants and design their very own bee hotels – which are a great way to help bees as they provide space for the 200 different species of solitary bees within the UK to nest in For more information please call the sales team on 0844 8115 515 or visit http://www.dwh.co.uk/
