GFSL staff member going above and bee-yond at HMP Warren Hill
Alan Weale, a electrician at HMP Warren Hill has gone above and bee-yond by donating two colonies of bees from his own apiary in Suffolk.
Allen recently said:
I am very pleased to see each hive doing very well at Warren Hill with each hive headed by a strong laying Queen and plenty of stores of pollen and nectar going in. I feel very blessed working here at Warren Hill and having bees here is a big bonus to me.
I feel very passionate about bee welfare as the bees are struggling for survival and the more bees we can help the better.
Allen feels so strongly about bee welfare that he is even thinking of extending his help to HMP Warren Hill’s sister site at Hollesley Bay.
