The bee’s knees

Your Café keepers have been remiss in keeping our readers informed of the news buzzing out of Lambeth Palace. August is an especially sleepy time in the Church of England, and there’s been little news out of the COE Media Centre, so there’s no excuse for missing this story:

Get a buzz out of caring for creation, said David Shreeve, the Church of England’s National Environment Adviser, after visiting Lambeth Palace’s 12 hives, whose bees help London grow greener. The bees pollinate plants and flowers across a seven mile radius in the capital with each hive providing around 60lbs of honey a year. Wax from one hive has even been used to make a small model of the Archbishop of Canterbury.

The story is here. The ABC bees wax candle can be seen at Church Mouse Publishing.
