Home-builder Taylor Wimpey recently welcomed the Year 2 children of Edisford Primary School to its Ribble Meadows development in Clitheroe for a fun and educational insight on protecting bees.

After the children donned protective suits, Rachael Baker, beekeeper from the Lancashire and North West Beekeepers’ Association was on-hand to offer demonstrations into the ways in which bees can be protected.

Alison Knight, Year 2 teacher at the school commented: “Our visit to Ribble Meadows was a fantastic way to stimulate learning in an exciting new environment.

“The endangerment of bees is an extremely serious matter so it’s great that Taylor Wimpey is raising awareness and invited us along to impart these principles from an early age.”

Chloe Dunn, head of sales at Taylor Wimpey Manchester said: “Protecting bees from becoming extinct is an extremely important factor which we have taken into account when developing Ribble Meadows.

“All of our gardens are bee-friendly and we absolutely loved welcoming the children of Edisford Primary School along to find out what they can do to help.”
