EVESHAM’S Busy Bees Nursery joined the celebrations for the company’s 30th anniversary and tried to break a world record in the process.
The nationwide chain reached the milestone on November 19, and in Evesham the nursery held a tea party for children, parents, staff and members of the local community to mark the day.
As part of the fun, children dressed-up in an attempt to break the world record for largest gathering of people dressed as bees and are waiting to find out if they have done so.
Kate Rowling, manager of Busy Bees in Evesham, said: “Every special occasion needs an extra special dress code, so to ensure our birthday went off with a buzz, everyone dressed up in their favourite bee costumes – anything stripy (yellow and black) plus a mask and wings.
“We’re hoping that we can even manage to break the world record – again.
“We set the record back in October 2009, and it was so much fun.
“However, we’ve since been beaten so we thought it would be a good time to see if we could do it again.”
To make the day even more memorable, Usborne books arranged for storytellers to attend and celebrate the upcoming release of the new book, Bee Makes Tea.
