    What is Bees Needs Week?

    Bees Needs Week is an annual event coordinated by Defra, working alongside charities, businesses, conservation groups and academic institutions to raise awareness of bees and other pollinators.

    Bees and other pollinators are vital for growing lots of our favourite foods and for plants to flourish in our fields and gardens
