THE founder of the Sheffield Honey Company spoke at the Green Party conference at Hallam University last weekend about the importance of bees and the need to boost their numbers.

Jez Daughtry highlighted Groundwork Sheffield’s Bee Buddies project, which has seen two million honey bees introduced into the city over a period of 12 months.

Euro MP Keith Taylor said: “The honey bee faces many threats – not least pesticides – and with populations around the world crashing in recent years it is important to understand the key role bees play in our lives.

“Without bees, how will we pollinate our crops?”
