There was a buzz in the air at Ingrebourne Valley Visitor Centre yesterday as youngsters learnt how to look after bees and their habitat.

The Brilliant Bees event at the centre in Hornchurch Country Park included tasting locally-produced honey, arts and crafts and a wildlife trail.

Holly Hucknall, educational community officer at Essex Wildlife Trust, which runs the centre, said: “The volunteers put it on and said it went very well.

“The aim of the event was mostly to promote how to look after bees in your garden.

“They are declining so rapidly at the moment, their habitat is going down.”
