Help to save Bedfordshire’s Bees
In the last 20 years the number of bees has halved prompting campaigners from Friends of the Earth to hold a public meeting to address the urgency to save the honey-producing insect.
Paul De Zylva ,of national Friends of the Earth, will be a guest speaker to talk about the latest scientific reports, the national campaign and what the government ministers are doing to save bees and also what we can do to save our bees locally in Bedfordshire.
In January, Paul organised a meeting of 120 MPs at the House of Commons which was attended by MP Andrew Selous in support of saving Bedfordshire’s bees that are being killed off because of habitat loss and pesticides.
Bees play a vital role in pollinating our crops from apples, strawberries, coffee, almonds and clover/alfalfa, which are food for livestock.
Victoria Harvey, of South Bedfordshire Friends of the Earth, said:
“This is a great opportunity to hear the government and top scientist are doing to save our bees and also learn what we can do to save bees locally in Bedfordshire. It is great that we have the support of our MP.”
The meeting will be held on Thursday, March 14 at 7.30pm at the Friends Meeting House on North street, Leighton Buzzard.
