Bees are buzzing all over the place at the moment. Last week, a new honey beer was launched called Brew Wild, made with honey from hives around Greater Manchester, including Kersal Dale, Heaton Park, Harpurhey and Manchester Art Gallery.

Now those same bees are being featured on the big screen, with a showing of the acclaimed short film, Buzzin On The Roofs, at St Paul's Church on Moor Lane this coming Monday, 20th March.

The evening is being organised by the Friends of Kersal Moor as a special tribute to former Kersal councillor and nature lover, Harry Davies, who recently passed away.

Harry stars in the film, alongside Jack Hobbs and Kay Phillips, touring unusually placed hives, like on the roofs of Manchester Cathedral, The Printworks and Manchester Art Gallery. The trio are also seen digging into the history of bees in the area, from ancient Egyptian hives at the Manchester Museum, to the bee's role in local branding via Boddington's, Manchester Council and the Co-op.

The urban bees of Salford and Manchester film is well worth viewing, and beforehand there is a talk by Bill Kitchingman of Kersal Aviaries on The Life of a Bee.

Hope you can come to this free public meeting on Monday eve. In this time of cuts, unemployment and stress it is comforting to know of bees who work so hard for no pay and our benefit. Without them our fruit trees, our veg and our flowers would not flourish and this would mean a great hole in our survival. Honey is a natural antiseptic, great with lemon juice for infected throats and better than sugar for sweetening. . A welcoming evening for all, children too. We will have 4 experienced bee keepers attending with honey for sale. The Friends of Kersal Moor are pleased to put on this evening as a tribute to Harry Davis, a champion for bees.
