Bee havens wanted

A new scheme to find patches of land which can be transformed into havens for bees has been launched by the Co-operative. It is working with the charity Plantlife to find neglected land plots and has asked local people to nominate possible sites.

The most appropriate patches of land will then be transformed by adding plants and flowers. It is hoped bees and other pollinating insects will then thrive there.

The Co-operative says the number of honeybees in the UK has halved in the past thirty years. You can nominate a patch of land by visiting its website.
