Children at a west Dorset primary school were joined by special guests to try and convince the council to be more bee-friendly.

Class 4 at Symondsbury Primary School spent a morning writing letters to Dorset Council asking for help in making Bridport a more bee-friendly town.

They worked with class teachers Miss Jenkins and Miss Prentice, Bridport town councillor and former mayor Ian Bark, as well as Alison Little from Bee Friendly Bridport to write letters that will be sent off to Dorset Council asking in particular that the two main roundabouts in Bridport be planted this year with pollinator-friendly plants.

The children's letters were packed with lots of different ideas and solutions for the council and so they are hoping that their letters will be listened to and that they will get a reply.

Bee Friendly Bridport is campaigning to improve pollinator habitats within the town and is planning to enter Bridport for a Bee Friendly Town award later this year.
