Manchester Bee Gallery
Three years ago on Monday 22nd May 2017 Nell Jones and her friend Freya Lewis went off to enjoy a concert together. Nobody could have contemplated the chain of events that followed. Nell, a lovely, bright, popular, young girl tragically lost her life. A campaign was launched to raise funds to create a lasting memory to Nell. One that she would have been proud of and a ‘Garden of Memories’ came to fruition. An area where people can reflect and think. We said that we will never ever forget Nell and a Walk of Memory has taken place in each of the last three years, Covid-19 prevents this in 2020 however, we intend to use the Manchester Bee which was adopted by the Remembering Nell campaign as a focus for our memories.
Alison Wright and Amy Albon have encouraged students and the community to get creative and make some bees through whatever means they wish as a sign of remembrance. They have come up trumps and done Nell and the others who died so tragically, proud.
