Achieving something together as a community. Bees.

At Oblong Leeds, where I work part time, we have about 50 volunteers all of whom are involved in volunteer led projects of one sort or another.  It’s amazing how motivated people can be when they see a need and realise they have the power to make a difference.  There are thousands of people and organisations doing good work around our cities.

This is a story from Todmorden in Yorkshire which is a brilliant case study of how people with passion and energy can engage with their community and have fun achieving something together.  This project is about bees and I’m impressed by the practical and inspired approach to making this project fly.
