Kent Wildlife Trust is celebrating the news that Guinness World Records has confirmed the bee house it built last year is indeed the worlds largest.
Staff and volunteers from Kents biggest conservation charity created the permanent 5m x 2.37m structure in just four hours at its Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve. Amanda Hamley, community fundraising and events manager, said: The house makes a great new visitor attraction for the nature reserve and should entice bees to take up residence this spring.
It should also help remind people of the plight of bees, with many species in serious decline, and encourage Kent residents to create simple bee houses for their own gardens.
All materials were donated by local businesses or sourced from the Trusts own nature reserves. Maidstone Prisons Garden Party built many of the internal component parts.
