CHILDREN tried their hand at beekeeping as part of a special environmental week.

Pupils at Eastfield Primary School in St Albans Close, Northampton will learn about bees all this week, as part of an event organised by Southcourt Environmental in Northampton.

A beekeeper from the Northamptonshire Beekeeper Association visited the school with a hive full of honey bees on Tuesday.

Susan Walmsley, from Southcourt Environmental, said: “It’s about teaching the children in a fun way how important bees are to our environment. They are learning about all different types of bees.

“It’s a nice, easy way for them to learn about it.”
