Douglas Council creates a buzz

Douglas Borough Council is getting behind #WorldBeeDay2022 with an event in the capital to raise awareness.

In celebration of the initiative, the Council is planning various activities, with special guest Bez the Buzzy Bee and his friend Winnie the Pooh for children to meet.

The Manx Wildlife Trust and IOM Beekeepers Federation will also be there for people to learn more about what bees do and their importance both locally and globally.

 Councillor Andrew Bentley, Chair of the Regeneration and Community Committee, said: ‘It’s hugely important that we protect our local bee population as the role they play in the environment is vital. We actively run a Pollinator Action Plan where we take on pollinator projects throughout the year. This includes planting of bee friendly flowers in a presentable fashion and actively identifying and protecting pollinator habitats wherever possible.’

The event takes place this Saturday from 11am until 4pm.
