A WORCESTERSHIRE college has provided homes for bees and bugs in an attempt to save them from extinction.

The Heart of Worcestershire College have set up thirty bug houses across its campuses in an effort to ‘reduce the college’s carbon footprint and promote a range of wider environmental and sustainability actions everyone can take’.

Made from surplus materials and donated by Mazak, the houses are part of the college’s new Eco initiative.

Vice Principal Peter Robinson member of the Eco group said:“To kickstart the initiative, we commissioned the Worcester Environmental Group to produce a set of solitary bee hotels for us to give away to staff in order to raise awareness of our new group and the plight of bees. We’re really pleased with the end product – in fact, you could say we think they’re the bee’s knees!”
