Save our bees

The Government has announced that a pesticide restricted in many countries, containing neonicotinoid thiamethoxam, can be used to treat sugar beet seed from this spring.

Research has indicated that the pesticide harms bee brain development, weakens immune systems and can leave bees unable to fly.

Cllr Dr Janet Baah said, " Our food and environmental standards are under threat - please sign our petition calling on the government to reverse this decision."
