We learned last year that the summer season is a busy one for all sorts of events and this year has kicked off with a bang.Manchester Mega Mela 2014On Saturday the 21st and Sunday the 22nd we took part in the Manchester Mega Mela on Platt Fields Park. The Mela is the largest celebration of South Asian Culture in the North of England and is always a wonderful mixture of food, stalls and fun activities. We were based in the Arts and Crafts tent and decided to make bee themed bracelets to remind people of Manchester. These were popular with people of all ages.

We also decided to recreate the globe on Manchester’s crest by asking people to place bee stickers on the far flung parts of the globe that they have travelled to. Some of the furthest places included Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Mauritius.

On Sunday the 22nd of June we also had a stall on Albert Square as part of the Manchester Day Parade Celebrations. We took the opportunity to show off our bee themed handling box and took another globe for people to add bee stickers to.
