OH HONEY: Liverpool ONE celebrates World Bee Day
Liverpool ONE is today looking for a deserving school and its pupils to come forward and receive honey which has been harvested on the roof of the retail destination.
The honey has been produced by more than one hundred and sixty thousand bees in the special urban apiary installed up high, overlooking Lord Street in the city centre.
As part of World Bee Day the environmentally-friendly complex – the only UK retail destination with a park at its heart – is keen to form a partnership with a school which shares its environmental credentials.
Liverpool ONE is looking for schools to either nominate themselves, or individuals can also nominate a school. And in addition to receiving the jars of honey, the chosen school will also be treated to a "Bee-keeping and honey-harvesting" session by bee-keeper, John Beavan. The Master Beekeeper installed the hives on the roof above Barclays, overlooking Lord Street in the city centre, two years ago.
The entry should be no more than 150 words on why the school is deserving and sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject header 'BEES' by June 4th.
As the pandemic has drawn more attention to air quality and the environment, a series of calls to improve Liverpool's environment and climate have been backed by the city council.
The council's taking steps to improve air quality and biodiversity and avoid "carbon offsetting" as it looks to hit an ambitious target to become net zero carbon by 2030.
