The ‘Geordie Bees’
One day, somebody gave the Vicar a mad idea. Why not have bees on the church roof?
In the Summer of 2013 the first colony of bees were installed on the roof – the culmination of a project that involved many members of the church community, including Mike who built the hives, and Sheila, Sarah and Tony who went on bee-keeping courses to learn the craft.
Meanwhile, the grounds around the church have undergone significant re-landscaping. Trees have been pruned, and the untidy shrubbery cleared to open up the sight-lines and allow for new bee-friendly planting, including spring bulbs and a ‘medieval herb garden’.
Grainger Street Honey!
Of course, the best thing about bees is their honey, and our ‘Grainger Street Honey’ is absolutely delicious!
