We Are FoodPioneers CIC, Friends of Brooklands Park and Creative Waves CIC, have been working together this year to create a community beekeeping project and educational training space in Brooklands Park.
Our mission is to help engage the local community with pollinators through a series of collaborative activities, events, workshops and volunteering opportunities. As you will have read, we have been working hard to transform this industrial site into a natural asset for the community! The Worthing Honey Collective have been very busy preparing our Honey Bees for onward delivery to the Brooklands Apiary.
None of this would have been possible without the vital funding, grants, sponsorships and donations received! We are very grateful to the South Downs National Park Trust, Postcode Local Trust, the Sussex Transport team, Rampion Fund Sussex Community Foundation, Worthing Community Chest and Worthing and Sompting Lions for their incredibly generous donations.
We are hosting a series of FREE family fun activities, shows, talks and stalls at Brooklands Park from Friday 20th August through to Sunday 22nd August. The theme this year is building back better for bees: focusing on actions for restoring, supporting and enhancing the role of these important little pollinators.
