In January the Busy Bees thought about friendship, what it means to be a good friend, and whether the quantity of friends, their likes and dislikes or their ages matter. The story of the four friends in the bible, who carried their paralysed friend on his bed to Jesus, reminded us that good friends stick together.
To reinforce this idea the Bees took two biscuits from a selection, sweet, savoury, big, small, round or square and stuck them together with a filling chosen from a wide selection such as marmite or jam.
Like the biscuits, people are all different, and what draws them together is different, but the important thing is they stick as good friends however difficult that can be at times.
Everyone went away with a friendship bracelet, and a lot to think about and act upon.
In February we shall be meeting outside again when we shall be looking for signs of Spring.
