Buzz around Brigit’s talk
3:00pm Monday 25th February 2013 in News
CELEBRITY ecocampaigner Brigit Strawbridge will be hoping to cause a buzz when she gives a talk about bees for a local wildlife charity.
Mrs Strawbridge, the Malvern-based star of BBC 2’s It’s Not Easy Being Green, will be appearing at Worcestershire Wildlife Trust’s headquarters at Lower Smite Farm, in Hindlip, near Worcester, from 7-9pm on Thursday.
She said: “I shall be talking about the differences between honey, bumble and solitary bee species, their unique and fascinating behaviour patterns, their roles as pollinators, the reasons for their decline and, most importantly, what we can all do to help them.”
Ben Christie, reserves, events and volunteers officer for the trust, said: “Many readers will already know that populations of bees are declining and that this could be devastating for food production.
“We’re delighted that Brigit is able to join us for an evening and give us lots more information about this and about the fascinating world of these furry insects.”
