THERE will be a real buzz coming from the Skylark Maize Maze later this month. 

With the opening of their Maize Maze (the largest in East Anglia) on July 16, visitors will be able to follow the twisting pathways to discover the “Dance of the Bees” while helping out the “Honey Heroes”. 

Search the maze for flowers and bring “nectar” home whilst having fun and learning more about the importance of bees to the countryside and food production. 

Brand new for 2011 is the giant victory bridge, where the visitors can cheer their victory, and take in the full impact of the challenge.

As well as taking in the glorious countryside, the challenge of working out the secrets of the maze, there is the chance to test your skill with a “bee friendly” quiz.

Although the real bees will be faraway collecting pollen from nearby gardens and flowers, the cuddly figures of the “Honey Heroes” can be found within the depths of the maze.

After completing the challenge of the maze, parents can relax in the Skylark café. Children can carry on having fun in the new “fun yard”, bounce on the bouncy castles or climb the obstacle course.

There is also the chance to pedal go-karts on a race track, have a space hopper race, or take part in a football shoot out.

The café also overlooks the pigs and delightful pygmy goats together with sheep, geese, chickens and guinea fowl, plus of course the much loved Jenny the Skylark donkey.

Skylark Country and Garden Centre, Wimblington, near March, is open everyday from 9am to 6pm Monday to Saturday and 10am to 4pm on Sundays. Entry is £5.75 for adults and £4.75 for children under 14. A family ticket is £21.
