Due to concern over the Asian Hornet incursion, the BBKA is planning a poster campaign on the back of buses in areas affected by Asian hornets. This advertising will roll out across Kent, Devon, Southampton and the New Forest from 25th September.
This is the first time BBKA has carried out such a campaign and it will last for four weeks. Can Area Association Members in these areas please inform your members and let us know when they have seen the advert.
A request was put into DEFRA for them to consider funding or contributing to this campaign, but they have declined.
I hope to be able to share more positive news about wider advertising in the near future but if you have suggestions on how we could raise awareness further, please add your comments here so we can pass back to the BBKA.
