A good crowd gathered at the Queen's Hall to celebrate the launch of Plastic Free Narberth.
Great news for bees and all pollinators!
The European Union will ban the world’s most widely used insecticides from all fields due to the serious danger they pose to bees.
On 20th April Pembrokeshire Friends of the Earth members Bettina, Eleanor and Cherry met with Paul Davies to discuss Fracking in Wales. Friends of the Earth Cymru are currently campaigning for the moratorium on Fracking to be changed into an outright ban.
Bettina reported that "We had a good conversation today with Paul Davies. He told us that the Tory group in the Assembly support the moratorium on fracking which is still in place for a few years but that as of now he is not prepared to support a full ban. He does however have an open mind and wants to be convinced."
The Eurpean Food Safety Authourity have just published a landmark science review looking at the evidence from over 1500 studies. The report concludes that neonicotinoids pose a high risk for both honeybees and wild bees.
Pembrokeshire Friends of the Earth have been approached by the Landsker branch of the Labour Party to work together on making Narberth a plastic free town.
Monday 7th May we will launch the initiative with an event at Queens Hall
