We are Macmillan

We would like to say a special Thank You to members of the Gnosall Allotments and Gardens Association for organising their fundraising event on Wednesday 18th April with a talk by Ron Rock on “THE SECRET LIFE OF SOLITARY BEES”,the proceeds of which will be donated to Macmillan Cancer Support. The evening was a tremendous success with around 50 people attending. In his talk Ron demonstrated how solitary bees constructed their nests in various different ways and sealed each egg in separate compartments,each containing enough nectar and pollen for consumption when they hatch next spring. The adult never sees its offspring! He kept the audience entertained throughout with many other facts and details of how they operate and said that they could pollinate flowers and crops at fantastically higher rate than honey and bumble bees do. Many of them are so tiny we don’t even notice them around. The total raised for Macmillan was £206. Our thanks to all who attended and supported the event
