Vandalised beekeeper's hut, Stanton Park
89 year old beekeeper Ron Hoskins spent 20 years searching for a treatment for varroa in bees, but his work was destroyed in one night by vandals setting fire to his sheds and greenhouse. Luckily the bees survived, but much valuable equipment was destroyed. A fund set up to replace it has raised thousands of pounds. LinkExternal link
