Cemetery Junction Hosts 3 Bees Event

We’re pleased to announce that on Wednesday 31st July 2019, 11am-3pm, Friends of Cemetery Junction will be hosting The 3 Bees event with partners at the Old Cemetery. This is a great opportunity for families to learn about these important insects. Learn to waggle dance, meet bee keepers, get involved in bee-related arts and crafts. The cemetery is host to a whole ecosystem of wildlife and the bee is one of its most important tenants. We look forward to seeing you there!
