PUPILS at a Moreton Hall school are enjoying the sweet smell of success now that honey, made on the school’s grounds, is being sold locally.

In January, with the help of Mike Graystone, from Suffolk Beekeepers, Moreton Hall Preparatory School, in Mount Road, installed four beehives.

After a summer’s worth of honey was harvested, the enterprising children designed labels for the honey jars and are now busy selling it to raise money for Action Medical Aid.

The Coffee House, in Lawson Place, took 12 jars after being approached by Year 7 pupil Jake Swinburn.

Headteacher Simon Head said: “This has been a great project – the children have learned about bees, beekeeping, pollination and commerce, all on top of raising money for charity and enjoying delicious honey. “We’re harvesting some more honey in December and are already taking reservations.”
