Nicky Smith and Simon Cavill take difficulty with an earlier letter to the Guardian
Tim Evans (Letters, 7 December) has put a bee in my bonnet, saying that the British Beekeepers Affiliation (BBKA) frowns on the pioneering spirit of beekeepers. What unfair phrases!
I assist the BBKA run a scheme referred to as Undertake a Beehive, for members of the general public to find out about beekeeping and assist honeybees. They will undertake a beehive from certainly one of 10 areas within the UK, every with a BBKA beekeeper who experiences on the progress of their bees and beekeeping exercise. Anybody who has adopted a beehive from the north-west shall be following within the beekeeping lives of Janet and Fred. Fred, with the Lune Valley Group Beekeepers, is a pioneer of the lengthy hive and the DZ hive, and in addition a prolific planter of Pollinator Patches throughout the north-west.
