Manchester remembers we stand together pin badge There are many questions that probably enter your head while traversing Central Manchester on a daily basis. These range from ‘ Why have they dug up another tramline that was laid just six months ago?’ to ‘Does the Northern Quarter really need another coffee shop? Probably not, but I’ll likely go there anyway.’ and ‘Why are there loads of bees on bins in town?’ And just to clarify they are indeed bees not wasps, despite having a somewhat sinister slenderline complexion about them. More specifically, the bee is a worker bee and is a symbol of the city’s hard-working past, during the Industrial Revolution. Of course, Manchester isn’t the only place with a hard working past. Just about every other city in the North of England has a heritage built upon industry but there is a reason that the symbol is a part of Manchester’s coat of arms which was given to the city in 1842 The Nation has united behind our Armed Forces. During our first 10 years we’ve directly helped more than 17,000 individuals and their families in this way. Offering this to thousands more who need it remains possible thanks to our supporters, and specialist charity partners.In the 1800s Manchester was awash with textile mills that were commonly described as ‘hives of activity’ and the workers inside them compared to bees. Busy bee’ is still a term associated with industriousness and hard work. These days Manchester is a city mostly associated with a deep and rich pop culture and a musical history that has influenced artists all over the globe. Coincidentally, the former Sankeys nightclub in Ancoats is housed in the former Beehive Mill on Jersey Street. You won’t just find the bee on bins though, next time you’re in town, instead of looking where you’re going, stare upwards at the facades of buildings instead. The bee can be seen on the clock face of the Palace Hotel, on the mosaic flooring at Manchester Town Hall and even above the arches of Links of London. Furthermore, urban beekeeping even takes place on the roof of The Printworks , thus producing local honey. Next time you’re out, see if you can spot ‘em all.
