For those attending the Royal Norfolk Show next week, witnessing beautiful and interactive stands is something many have come to expect.

And this year will be no exception, with one stand in particular creating a buzz around their innovative idea.

The Norfolk Beekeepers’ will as usual have a stand at the 
showground, and will be using the venue as a place to educate the general public about honey bees and importance of them to the environment.

But this year, the group are also building a giant bee skep each day, and would like to get children and their parents involved in building it.

Their idea is to complete one each day of the show and make it large enough that the children can crawl inside.

This year, the beekepers are also including a pollination garden, designed by Larissa’s gardens.
