We welcomed the children of Winnington Park Primary School’s Eco Club to our Winnington Village development in Northwich, Cheshire, for a fun and educational insight on protecting bees.

With the children donning protective suits, Rachael Baker, beekeeper from the Lancashire and North West Beekeepers’ Association, was on-hand to offer demonstrations into the ways in which bees can be protected.

Jane Dale, headteacher at Winnington Park Primary School, says: “Our visit to Winnington Village was a fantastic way to stimulate learning in an exciting new environment.

“The endangerment of bees is an extremely serious matter so it’s great that Taylor Wimpey is raising awareness and invited us along to impart these principles from an early age.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank both Taylor Wimpey and Rachael for taking time out for the children.”

Winnington Park Primary School is based in the heart of the Northwich community and neighbours our Winnington Village development. 

Chloe Dunn, head of sales at Taylor Wimpey Manchester, says: “Protecting bees from becoming extinct is an extremely important factor which we have taken into account when developing Winnington Village.

“All of our gardens are bee-friendly and we absolutely loved welcoming the children of Winnington Park Primary School along to find out what they can do to help.”
