Ennyn CIC has received nearly £5k in National Lottery Community Grant funding towards a project to take place in Llanbrynmair over 2020.
‘Plan Bee’ aimed to raise awareness of the importance of pollinators through a series of intergenerational community workshops, trips and events.
Before lockdown, we planned to run workshops exploring willow, illustration, printing, embroidery, wood-turning and carving; extra-curricular activities for children; talks by local people, tree planting, bee advice, and the creation of a ‘bee corridor’ through a regular gardening group. We wanted to reach out to all members of the community, particularly those who might feel lonely or isolated.
Due to Covid 19 we are changing how we deliver this project. With different local practitioners we have created a number of 'how-to' videos which can be found here, and provided people in the community with the tools and materials to have a go at a variety of different activities during lockdown.

"Very interested to learn about this group - I had no idea such an initiative or group existed. I’m a beekeeper in Bont Dolgadfan, and extremely passionate about these little creatures.."
