Bee Cause campaigning in Covent Garden

After a spot of hibernation over winter, our Bee Cause campaign was back out in the springtime sunshine, with a campaigning day at the Melvita store in Covent Garden on Sunday 21 April.

Melvita, an organic beauty brand founded by beekeeper Bernard Chevilliat, is supporting the campaign, and their Covent Garden shop is hosting a number of Bee Cause campaign days – featuring honey-tasting and bee face painting, and asking shoppers to sign the Bee Cause petition postcards.  Our bee suits (see photo below) got a lot of interest from passers-by, and we had a lot of support for a national bee action plan – lots of postcards were signed for us to send on to David Cameron!

We are also mentioned in this week’s Ham & High newspaper (18 April 2013), supporting a proposal to create a bee-friendly space in Highgate Reservoir, land owned by Thames Water.  Full text of the article is below.
