A huge thank you to all who entered and took part!

Congratulations to the first place winners of the three categories:

Best school build – Bishops Nympton primary school (South Molton):

Well done to our two runners up; Ebon Seldon Green from Great Torrington and the Honiton beehive community gardeners!

The competition has been all about getting people across Devon to provide crucial habitats for pollinators, many of which are in serious decline, by building creative and well designed bug hotels!

Even though the competition is over, there is still lots you can do to help pollinators in your back gardens and local areas. Take a look at some of the work that our partners are doing and how you can get involved!

Share what you are doing to benefit pollinators with us on social media by using #GetDevonBuzzing
