Broomwood Hall Lower School Bee Rescue
A swarm of bees at Broomwood Hall Lower School were safely rescued and re-homed by keen amateur bee-keeper and Director of Estates, Nick Clark.
On Thursday 27 May, pupils at Broomwood Hall Lower School were excited to see some unexpected guests. A swarm of bees decided to take up residence on the wall outside Class 2. Luckily for them, intrepid Director of Estates, Nick Clark, who is a keen amateur bee-keeper, was on hand to help them find a more suitable home. Donned in his finest bee-keeping suit, Nick grabbed a ladder and a cardboard box and carefully moved them into the box and transported them safely to one of his spare hives in Surrey.
Although the children were disappointed to see them go, everyone agreed with Nick when he said "I'm sure they'll be much happier in my field than on the side of the school" . Happy children, happy Nick and happy bees!
