York Urban Buzz is keeping very busy and great things are happening around York. They have now created/enhanced 16 ‘Buzzing hotspots’ out of their target of 100, including supporting the bee bank in the Cornfield at Rawcliffe Meadows. The support of local people and communities has been fantastic so far. In order to ensure their project costs are covered they need to raise a further £5,000 and have launched an online appeal.
Wildlife presenter Steve Backshall and York MP Rachael Maskell are supporting the campaign as can be seen here: https://www.buglife.org.uk/news-&-events/news/high-level-support-for-local-project-for-bees-and-butterflies-fundraising
