A children’s sand pit at Apex Park’s play area in Highbridge is to be cordoned off as a precaution due to a colony of bees.
Sedgemoor District Council spokeswoman Claire Faun confirmed: “We are aware of a colony of masonry bees in the sandpit at Apex Park.”
“The area will be cordoned off as a precaution. The advice is to leave them alone; they do not sting and are non-aggressive.”
“Most are active a very short time. After about four-to-six weeks of activity, they disappear for another year.”
