Glos Rd Central’s buzzing!

OUR local high street was buzzing last month, as a hive of bees swarmed to Gloucester Road Central.

OUR local high street was buzzing last month, as a hive of bees swarmed to Gloucester Road Central.

Beekeeper Nigel Hurst brought along a section of one of his hives and chatted to passers by about interesting bee facts and tips.

His bees provide the ingredients for the 'Hives and Herbals' products at Room 212.

The bees created such a buzz that owner of the art gallery, Sarah Thorp, has asked Nigel to bring them back on August 1, as part of the launch for Chrissie Decker's 'Green Treasure Hunt' and Room 212's 'Food for Thought' theme.

The bees will also be returning to the gallery on September 12 for its harvest theme, and to coincide with the Golden Hill Community Garden's Harvest Festival and the Festival of Nature at Horfield Common.
