David Tough sent ECI this update: The 1st Tralee Company Boys’ Brigade, Church of St. John the Evangelist, has sponsored a Pollinator Friendly Garden in the church grounds as part of a biodiversity project including their Beach Garden, Bird Table and Bug Hotels. The garden has been planted with pollinator friendly bulbs for next spring and will be developed in time with additional planting. A mural depicting a friendly bumble bee and the slogan “Be Bee Friendly” was painted on the church wall.
We were delighted to show this to The Archbishop of Armagh, The Most Rev Richard Clarke and Bishop Kenneth Kearon at the recent Bicentenary and Harvest Thanksgiving Service in St. John’s Church. The Girls and Boys are looking forward to seeing who books into our BB Bug B&B in the coming months.
