A West Dorset town will be a hive of activity as it welcomes a bee friendly event.

Bridport will be buzzing with excitement on Saturday, Match 30 when Bee Friendly Bridport unveils its Bee Hotel Trail.

A bee hotel is a place where certain types of bees can nest.

Starting at 10am in Bucky Doo Square, there will be a bee costume making workshop. Bee themed cakes will also be available.

From 1pm the procession will move to the Community Orchard in Bridport for a performance from a bee circus.

The events are free to attend and family friendly.

Bee Friendly Bridport is a community group established by the Dorset Bee and the Symondsbury School Bee Club. 

The group aims to raise awareness of the importance of bees and all pollinators, as well as the risks to habitat loss.
