Youngsters from Squirrels Children’s Day Nursery in Middleton, Manchester, attended an educational talk about protecting the environment for bees at our Pennington Wharf development in Leigh.

Delivered by local beekeeper, Susan Webster, the activity was in aid of raising awareness of the reasons why bees have become endangered and the various ways in which people can help protect the environment for bees.

Nicola Blacker, nursery manager at Squirrels Children’s Day Nursery, comments: “The children thoroughly enjoyed the beekeeper activity at Pennington Wharf, and definitely took a lot of invaluable knowledge away on the importance of protecting bees.

“Both the experience and the beekeeper were great. The props – in particular the observation hive and the veil – were a lot of fun, and everybody had a fantastic time.”

Squirrels Children’s Day Nursery provides key early years learning and development for children in the region up to the age of five.

Chloe Dunn, Associate Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey Manchester, explains: “Protecting the environment is at the forefront of our ethos, which is why we have made the majority of our showhome gardens bee-friendly.

“We’re thrilled that the nursery enjoyed the experience and we hope to work with them in the not-too-distant future.”

Nicola concludes: “I would like to thank Taylor Wimpey for inviting us to the development and for the whole experience.”

Pennington Wharf currently features a range of three and four-bedroom houses.
