Happy World Bee Day!

Wednesday 20 May was World Bee Day. This is a significant day that highlights the importance of bees and other pollinators for our own survival. If bees were to become extinct, 70% of the world’s food production would be lost. Habitat changes, disease and warming climate are affecting bee populations. Like of all us, bees need a home, food and water. Bees need your help now. Many Whitefriars family backyards can provide these by building simple bee hotels, put out a dish of water with pebbles and plant bee attracting plants. For more information, visit:
