Friends of the Earth (https://www.foe.co.uk/act/protect-our-bees-from-pesticides) are encouraging us to sign a letter to Lynn Truss, Secretary of State for the Environment, to make the neonicotinoids ban permanent, and to resist NFU pressure to relax the ban for oil seed rape.

There is also a petition at https://www.change.org/p/natural-resources-wales-deny-the-grant-of-an-environmental-permit-for-an-exploratory-borehole-at-merthyr-mawr?recruiter=301374705&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=facebook&utm_campaign=share_page&utm_term=mob-xs-share_petition-custom_msg regarding an exploratory borehole, potentially related to fracking, near Bridgend (deadline 27 May).
