A BUG hotel is being constructed today (Thursday, August 6) at Taunton's Eastleigh Court, which provides supported accommodation for 20 people with severe mental illness.

Caroline Lewis, from Somerset Community Foods, is visiting to help with the project, which aims to encourage beneficial insects to an allotment created there over recent months.

The veg patch was created after volunteers from HSBC dug over a previously grassed over enclosed garden.

The fresh veg produced is used for cookery group sessions at Eastleigh Court.
