Further to the earlier post about the Bee Meadow, I can now report that on Monday 9th January 2023, Bee Hotels were placed in their permanent positions on the London Road Campus and in the garden of the Museum of English Rural Life (MERL). They were installed by Robin Dean, bee expert.
At London Road, the hotel is situated on the south wall of L33 (ICT & Modern Languages).
In the MERL gardens, Robin was assisted by Cathy Smith who coordinates volunteering on the garden projects.
The Bee Meadow Project is funded by the Friends of the University of Reading and the University’s Teaching and Learning Fund.
