Read some comments from our sponsors, about the trail and why they have sponsored -
“Laverstock and Ford Parish Council are as busy as bees working for our residents. As dedicated volunteers with no political bias we might be compared to a small colony of industrious insects although solitary bees we are not! When we looked at the grant application from Bee City for us to be a main sponsor of the Bee Trail we were inspired by the thought of our countryside-loving parishioners, together with the hundreds of students at our secondary schools, collecting a virtual Andrena cineraria, Orchard pollinating bee on their smartphones before taking a stroll on one of our Parish Trails across our bee friendly chalk downs and water meadows.”
''We love our bees at Blue Bee (no surprise there!) so when we heard about the Secret Garden in Salisbury installing a permanent city wide trail to showcase all 260 species of bees we were first in line to show our support! We all love and need the honeybee but the new city trail will help more people understand the importance of all species of bee.
The 3D trail is the first in the UK, and is part of an amazing project to make our Salisbury the first education focused bee friendly city in the UK. The 12 trail stops will be situated throughout the city with our Blue Bee logo situated on each sign! The trail will be officially opened in July this year following other bee focussed events in Salisbury''
Becky Twigg, organiser of Bee city added, “it is great to have a business in Salisbury helping us with sponsorship, it is clear how much they love our little bee friends and it is a snug fit with their name too”.
Vicky, Director of Blue Bee added “Once we heard about the trail we were really keen to help in any way we can. Supporting our City is important to our company’s ethics and beliefs, but supporting our ever changing city and helping bees is a win, win for us. It will be great to put our web design tools down and experience it all in July”.
