Bees Update - September 2013

John has been unable to contact the residents’ group at Sharrow to let them know that we are willing to help them to create a bee meadow. John will endeavour to contact them and organise this activity.

More than Honey is a new film about bees. It is suggested that we link up with Showroom cinema to see if they are showing this film. If they are then we could perhaps have a stall and give out some information. If they are not showing the film then perhaps we can show it ourselves. David can hire a lecture theatre at Sheffield university for free. We can also sell drinks and cakes to raise money.

Friends of the Earth have produced new bee postcards for us to use over the next month.

Body Shop has contacted John for some information on bees for their new promotion. There was concern that they are linked with Nestlé and so John is to contact Simon Bowens or Rachel Hubbard for advice. If this goes ahead then we could use the new leaflets at this event.
