Dozens of families came together as part of an ongoing project in Waltham Forest to save the declining bee population.

The green-fingered residents of Wallthamstow sowed thousands of seeds across a wildflower meadow in Kitchener Road Park on Saturday.  

Organised by Waltham Forest Friends of the Earth as part of the Bee Cause Campaign, up to 50 adults and children attended the 3 hour planting session.

The environmental group received £1000 community ward funding for the scheme which seeks to reverse the decline in bee population by providing food for all local pollinating insects.

A second planting session is to planned for Lloyd Park in Forest Road, Walthamstow next month.
