Fun fact

… about bees. All worker bees are female. A bee produces a teaspoon of honey (about 5 grams) in her lifetime. To produce a kilogram of honey, bees fly the equivalent of three times around the world in air miles. The type of flower the bees take their nectar from determines the honey’s flavour. Male bees (drones) have bigger eyes to help them find the Queen Bee.

Prayer for the week

We pray for our local community, and for all the events bringing us together. For our parks and open spaces, letting us embrace God’s creation.
