VIDEO: The Bee Lady creates a buzz at Sewerby Hall

Sewerby Hall and Gardens rolled out the red carpet for Hull’s Bee Lady, Jean Bishop, as she visited on Monday to see a floral tribute to her.

Students who attend the Worklink project at Sewerby have cretaed a series of displays celebrating inspirational women from the last 100 years, to mark the centenary of some women being given the vote.

Jean, who has raised thousands for Age UK, is honoured alongside JK Rowling, Beatrix Potter, Her Majesty The Queen, Mary Berry and Amy Johnson.

She said : “I think it’s beautiful, with such lovely artistic work. The people here must have put lots of good hours into it. I had a lovely day at Sewerby Hall and Gardens and I would like to thank the staff for making me and my family so welcome.”
