Dear Parish Clerk
I am writing to request you help in raising awareness of the importance of honey bee swarms.
I am writing to you because
· Your community falls within the area covered by Mid Bucks Beekeepers Association
· Or is very close to the area
· Or we have a member who lives in your community
· or we have collected a swarm from your vicinity in recent years.
I am the current swarm officer for MBBKA and along with members of other local bee keeping associations, as part of a national initiative, well will collect and re-house honey bee swarms free of charge.
I attach a PDF document and would ask you if you will be kind enough to place it on your website and print it off and display amongst your notices.
I apologise if you have been sent this more than once in error, although I note that in some cases you may be the clerk of several different councils.
Many thanks for your help
Brian Bush (MBBKA Swarm Officer)
