Our last meeting didn’t go quite to plan in that the lady due to visit and talk Jam and Salsa had ended up in A & E and wasn’t able to join us. One of our members (and Treasurer) Helen Tandy had to step in at the last minute to put on an evening with the bees – part 2!!!
As many of you know, Helen is also Coordinator for Friends of the Earth Chester and District who were attending both the Goodlife Experience and Chester Zoos Wildlife Festival from the 15th to 17th September and there was still so much prep to do!
The Chester Devas WI ladies came to her rescue and painted a large bag of toilet rolls yellow for the children to make into Bees and made up some bee necklaces which were sold at the Goodlife Experience and Chester Zoos Wildlife Festival to raise funds to save our bees. Helen and her team were so grateful the group agreed to help and for a good cause as well – the children loved it!
