Schoolchildren were buzzing when they visited the Layton Honey Bee Project.

The Year Three pupils from AKS, Lytham, visited the Layton Allotments, close to Blackpool Victoria Hospital, to learn about how 
honey bees work and see their hives.

Bee keeper Mica told the children all about the queen bee and her workers, as well as how important bees are in nature.

The children loved donning bee keeper suits and were able to spin honey from the hives before tasting the finished product.

They also toured the allotments, where some of the children pulled up their own rhubarb sticks, tasted chives and sorrel and saw asparagus growing.

Allotment owners showed how they look after the environment by putting things back into nature.

Paul Crouch, from AKS, said: “I think all the children would agree this was a great trip and they all learnt a little bit more about the bees.”
