On Friday and Saturday 1st and 2nd of April James Curtis Head Beekeeper of Wildwing Honey was invited to take part in ITVs promotional event of their new series ‘The Durrells’ which started on Sunday evening. The two day event was held at ‘The Lookout’ which is the Royal Parks education and events building built on top of an old reservoir.
We took along honey for 600 visitors to sample, an electronic beehive complete with sounds and moving bees, all our equipment and of course our beesuits. We talked and answered questions on everything honey bee related, gave advice on the best plants to grow to help our pollinators, encouraged everyone to buy local honey near to where the live and took a childrens beesuit for kids to try on.
It was a fantastic fun filled two days and will hopefully help promote local bees, honey and awareness of the local landscape with everyone who visited.
