What’s the buzz?

Bath’s latest street market – the once-a-month Independent Bath Market in Abbey Green and Abbey Street – was in full swing in today’s sunshine. The event is to be held on the third Sunday of each month through to October.

Some rescue services river rescue training also spotted underway on Pulteney Weir. Surely the coolest place to be today.


The ‘rescue’ group wade out onto the weir.


The mock up rescue is soon under way.

Also, one public rubbish bin in Abbey Courtyard was out of bounds today as a swarm of honey bees gets down to the business of selecting a new Queen Bee and going off to form a new colony. Hope they were left in peace.


The bee swarm has taken over the refuse bin.
