Our site is located directly opposite Ravensbury Primary School which means that whenever the students are out playing on their breaks they can see all the activity of the site. On site and at the school we have both done a lot of work regarding the Manchester Bee. Ourselves and the school have both highlighted the historic association of the bee image and Manchester’s industrial heritage also.
We decorated our hoarding with the Manchester Bee, both to brighten up the hoarding and as a sign of solidarity to the area we come from and are working in. We planted flower beds around our site to encourage real bees to pollinate, all of which were fed through our rain collection tanks. We have also adopted the school three bees from a local bee hive and named them Ben, Sheldon and Heather after the streets we are working on. All of these efforts have contributed to bringing disparate elements of the community together and shown the students of the local school a different side of the construction industry.
