Manchester Is Hit By a Swarm of BEES

Don't Panic. These Bees will do you no harm. Quite the opposite in fact, they are already bringing an immense amount of pleasure to many people. Ever since the dreadful events of 2017s Arena bombing, the Bee (always the symbol of the city) has been adopted with some gusto as a defiant symbol of this proud city.


The Bees are to be found dotted cross the city centre and suberbs. There are 101 large Bees, and 19 small ones. Each Bee has been hand decorated by various artists, and splendid they look too. They are all set on individual mounts and carry a descriptive panel and title. They haven't let the play on words pass them by, with such titles as Bee Unique, Sneezbee, Bee United, Not Too Shabbee etc, etc.

So if you are stuck for something to do over the next 2 months or so, why not make a BEE Line for Manchester (sorry couldn't resist that one).
