Jars of honey from Laidlaw Library bees

Photos of Laidlaw were submitted via Twitter

To celebrate a successful first year for the Laidlaw Library beehives, the Library ran a Laidlaw Library photo competition.

The prize was a jar of honey produced by the campus bees, some of which live on top of Laidlaw Library. The rest of the honey went on sale in university cafes and sold out extremely quickly.

Several excellent entries were submitted via Twitter.
