The empty hive, brilliantly restored by John and Jenny Gilbert, has been returned to the roundabout, with the kind permission of Wokingham Borough Council and Martin & Pole who sponsor the planting on there. This year it benefits from its own sign designed and produced by a student from the Holt School
It welcomes people to Wokingham and says this is a Bloom town. It seems to support the Britain in Bloom theme of ‘Greener Streets: Better Lives’ in a way that you can’t quite pin down. Please let the Town Council know if you spot significant numbers of bees loitering – although this is unlikely!
