Established in 2013. Bee Wirral is a lottery funded community centre, created to help bring a sense of community to Birkenhead. The organisation was called Birkenhead Early Excellence, which is where the name Bee comes from, as the centre is renowned for our baby groups and infant massage led by Lisa Heath of Relaxed Bay-Bees.
As the centre has grown through kind donations and having more friendly faces through the door, we have established ourselves as a place for people to book rooms for meetings, family contact sessions, courses, and social groups such as sewing and a men's club.
By coming together with FareShare, we have also created a Food Co-op. This allows people to have access to food for just £3 a bag (suggested donation), without any need for referral, and no questions asked. We have recently opened up a Beauty Bank, and are part of the directory of free toiletries run by Toiletries Amnesty. If you need free toiletries, all you have to do is ask, and we'll see how we can help you.
Recently, we have taken on a beehive, and have some lovely home-made cards and bags available to buy.
Overall, we are excited to continue to develop our community centre as an essential part of Birkenhead and a hub for the local community to learn and grow, a place to Bee.
