People learned more about bees at an event at Painshill Park on Sunday, May 1.

Geoff Cooper, beekeeper at the 18th century landscape garden in Cobham, gave people the opportunity to see how bees make honey and also demonstrated how he uses the beekeeping equipment.

The event was organised to celebrage Britain's honey bees, which are in serious decline. Mr Cooper gave advice to the crowd on how help bees by growing bee friendly plants and using less chemicals in the garden.

At the end of the day, visitors were then given the chance to taste the park's own honey.
