Create a Bee World at King George VI Park, Kingswinford
Date: Saturday 27th September at 11:00–15:00
Where: King George VI Park, Kingswinford (map)
Calling all volunteers to help us clear some ground and sow some seeds to create a Bee World ready to bloom in the Spring! Bring a spade, shovel or fork, and a picnic too, for a lovely afternoon socialising and doing your bit for the bees. We’d love to see you there!
We have a prominent position in King George VI Park, Kingswinford, kindly donated by Dudley MBC. There is plenty of parking at the Park Lane entrance by the bowling green. Walk towards the lake and you’ll find us!

Next River Stour clean-up event
Date: Sunday 29th June, 10.15 for 10.30
Place: Richardson Drive ( Off Wollaston Road), Stourbridge
Directions: Take Harrop way off Richardson Drive. Parking needs to be sensitive as it’s a residential area.
There is some nasty rubbish in the river around the small bridge there and a great deal of Himalayan Balsam which needs to be pulled out (for those who don’t want to get into the river).If you have some favourite gloves please bring them or we can provide.
Himalayan Balsam is an invasive species which is taking over and ousting our native plants (though it’s true the bees do like it.) This is a good time to remove it.
We hope to get back under the bridge at some point before too long to finish the job with the help of ‘The Warrior’!
I understand that the Council may have given the green light for a sign on the Stour Bridge saying River Stour.
All the best,
