ENVIRONMENTAL campaigners have been creating a buzz with giant bee costumes ahead of a screening of a film about the insects.
Redditch Friends of the Earth have been appearing at events dressed as bees to publicise More Than Happy, an award-winning film telling the tale of what could happen if bees become extinct. It looks at colonies, the current crisis and why bees are relied on for so many things.
As part of the Bee Cause campaign, the show will be screened at The Railway Inn on Hewell Road on Friday, September 27, at 7.30pm with entrance in return for a donation. It is sponsored by SP Designs.
Campaigner Alistair Waugh said: “Protecting bees is a very popular subject. Our giant bee costumes created a real buzz at Morton Stanley Festival, collecting over 250 postcards of support. We were swarmed with interest from people keen to learn about the loss of bee habitats and how bees are affected by pesticides and disease.”
