SAVE OUR BEES: Support our campaign by sending us your #SaveOurBees pictures

HEARTBROKEN supporters of the Coventry Bees speedway team can continue to support our Save Our Bees campaign by posing for a picture using #SaveOurBees.

It’s been more than four weeks since news broke that the world-famous Brandon club would not be competing in this season’s SGB Premiership following a bitter off-track dispute involving multiple parties.

The Observer has published a series of articles – reflecting on previous memories, documenting fans concerns and announcing significant figures who have backed our campaign.

And now fans of the club can show their support from their own living room.

We want to see pictures of concerned and devastated fans holding a piece of paper featuring the words ‘#SaveOurBees’ – the more the better.

Fans of all ages can post, email, tweet, or Facebook message their pictures. Eventually all images will be saved and published for the Coventry community and wider world to see.

Our campaign has two aims – we firstly want to see the Coventry Bees back on track for the 2018 SGB Premiership season.

We also want to ensure a long-term plan in developed so the Bees can look forward to a bright future away from their Brandon home once a potential lease ends.

To continue the campaign drive, we – this morning – have emailed every MP in the region asking if they would like to back our campaign and calls to re-home the world-famous club.

Generations of Coventry families have been entertained by the excitement of speedway in the city since the club first raced at the Brandon venue in 1928.

Legendary speedway riders have competed for the Bees down the years – Ole Olsen, Tommy Knudsen and Nigel Boocock to name a few.

All of whom were household names while at their peak.
