Henley pubs are buzzing to the sound of bees
Published 30/07/14



PUBS in the Henley are supporting Friends of the Earth’s Bee Cause campaign.

They are planting bee-friendly flower beds designed to help save Britain’s declining bee population,

Brakspear has provided 60 of its pubs with Bee Cause kits containing packets of flower seeds, plant markers and drip mats and posters about the campaign.

Pubs which successfully establish a bee-friendly area in a garden, window box or patio tub can then apply for Bee World status.

Brakspear chief executive Tom Davies said: “The Bee Cause was a natural for Brakspear to get behind because not only do we have a bee in our logo, we also have some of the finest pub gardens in and around Henley.

“We’re delighted with response to this campaign from our pubs and impressed by the stunning flower beds that are now buzzing with bees. Many of our pub customers, who are aware of the plight of the bee, are pleased to see their local doing something about it.”

One of the pubs taking part is the Saracen’s Head in Greys Road, which has planted daisies, buttercups, poppies and other wild flowers and grasses. Landlady Melanie Roberson said: “The patch is buzzing with the sound of bees, so they’re clearly enjoying it.” Further information regarding the campaign click here
