Tring named ‘bee friendly’ town by the Bee Friendly Trust

    Tring is now a Bee Friendly town

    Tring has been named a ‘bee-friendly town’ by the Bee Friendly Trust as part of its first awards given on World Bee Day.

    Tring has been named a ‘bee-friendly town’ by the Bee Friendly Trust as part of its first awards given on World Bee Day.

    To achieve the status, towns have to meet a set of nine criteria including planting up roundabouts, encouraging bee-friendly schools, pubs and businesses, putting up homes for wildlife, planting wildflowers and being pesticide-free.

    Tring has worked to achieve this through its local efforts to encourage people to plant more wildflowers and make bee hotels.

    Polly Eaton, of the Justice and Peace Group, Tring who received the award on behalf of the community, said: “We are so excited to receive this. I just want to thank everyone who participated which is individuals, organisations, local government, schools.”

    Dr Luke Dixon, the co-founder of the Bee Friendly Trust, said: “The Bee Friendly Town Awards celebrate the coming together of communities for the important cause of saving the nation’s bees and pollinators.”

    The town is one of six towns to receive the title nationally.
