University honey on sale

In a campus first, honey produced from beehives located within the University’s grounds will be on sale at a series of seasonal pop-up stalls starting this week.

Two varieties of honey — gathered from beehives at King’s Meadow Campus and at Bunny Park (farmland near Sutton Bonington Campus) — will be available. The different landscape settings are reflected in the flavour and colour of the two varieties.

Stalls selling University honey will be at the following locations:

  • 11.00am-2.00pm, Tuesday 5 December 2017: Medical School foyer (at the Women’s Staff Network Christmas Fair)
  • 11.00am-3.00pm, Wednesday 6 December 2017: The Barn, Sutton Bonington (at SB Farmers’ Market)
  • 12.30pm-2.30pm, Thursday 7 December 2017: Entrance to Café Aspire, XU Yafen Building, Jubilee Campus
  • 12.00 noon -2.00pm, Tuesday 12 December 2017: Outside Juice Bar, C Floor, Portland Building, University Park
  • 12.00 noon-2.00pm, Wednesday 13 December 2017: Main entrance foyer, King’s Meadow Campus

The limited edition University honey is priced at £5.50, with an offer to buy 2 jars for £10. Please note that all sales are cash only.

There will also be opportunities to purchase the University of Nottingham Campus Wildlife Calendar 2018, featuring some of the most photogenic #beastsofUoN from across our UK and Asia campuses.

Proceeds from honey and calendar sales will contribute to the University’s Environment Initiative Fund, which provides grants to student or staff-led sustainability projects.
