SAVE OUR BEES: Spray paint applied to gates securing Coventry Stadium

Shaun Reynolds 9th Nov, 2017 Updated: 9th Nov, 2017

SPRAY paint has been applied to the gates securing Coventry Stadium, former home of the Coventry Bees speedway club.

The paint covers words that previously advertised speedway and stock car racing at the stadium to the passing public.

It is not known who is responsible for applying the paint.

We have contacted Coventry Stadium owners Brandon Estates for a comment and asked them who has applied the paint and why.

The situation was raised by James Ansell on the Save Coventry Speedway Facebook group, which has more than 3,700 members.

The group, which was formed before Bees’ axe from the SGB Premiership, campaigns against any potential development plan and is a regular forum for concerned fans to voice their opinions and concerns.

Our Save Our Bees campaign continues to oppose plans for 137 homes to be built on the Coventry Stadium site and supports the short – and long-term – future of the Coventry Bees speedway team.

Use #SaveOurBees on Twitter or email your Bees memories to editor@coventryobserver.co.uk to support the campaign.
