For the Bees part of the two day event in Llangollen:

Community Action for Climate Change Network
22-23 November
The Pavilion, Llangollen

Event Aims
The Networks aim to draw together those working at grass roots to create a
movement for community action across Wales.  It hopes to create a platform for
community and Third Sector organisations and individuals, working on or wishing to
work on actions that tackle the adverse effects of climate change, to share, learn and
collaborate at a regional level. Cynnal Cymru provides networking/information-
sharing/forum/resources at an all-Wales level, and the proposed regional networks
will feed in and out of this.

Thanks to everyone who has been helping us in our quest for securing Honey Bees for the project!  we have now ordered our bees from some beekeepers on the Welsh border. The bees are due to arrive in Swansea in the next few weeks, keep checking the blog for the updates as we install the hives and house the bees.

The grounds of Swansea University has been confirmed as an ideal place for our bees by Chris Jones from Swansea Community Farm. Local choirs will visit this space throughout the summer to sing to the bees. The hives will be installed near to the buildings of the School of the Environment and Society at the University in the next few weeks.
