Let’s travel together
From Nottingham we can take the train at 10.38am, an open return is £7.80 and there are return trains every half an hour.
The UK government has allowed the emergency use of banned neonicotinoid pesticides in England for the third consecutive year.
These chemicals are responsible for impairing bee learning and memory—which affects a bee colony’s ability to forage for food. Worse still, the pesticides also get into the pollen and nectar, which the bees then carry back and expose to the whole hive
