Event details:

Come and learn about the importance of creating space for these vital pollinators, while getting hands on with the power tools and creating a mound for masonry bees and other solitary bees here on site. 

These bees like to live in little holes or tubes all on their own, and depending on the type of bee will fill up the entrance with mud, clay, or bits of leaves!

We will be using drills to create holes in a variety of materials, and piling them up to make one big hotel for the bees.

Location

Additional information

Enter the park from the South via Park Lane. Proceed through the barrier into the park and the site is the first gate on the right.

Transport Links

Just south of Stockport Town Centre, this location has great public transport links with the number 314 bus regularly leaving Stockport Bus Station for the nearby Turncroft Lane.

Although a steep cycle from Stockport through Vernon and Woodbank Parks, there are many quiet routes to us and secure bike locking on site.

There is a large free car park just 100 m from the site at the end of Edwin Street.
