An update for our supporters

Many staff are working remotely where possible and should be able to respond on email, please bear with us as we adapt to working in new ways.

During this uncertain time, we aim to provide you with as much information as we can as we continue to focus on the UK’s bumblebees.

Keeping in touch

Following government guidance our offices are currently closed in order to protect our staff and volunteers and ensure the health and well-being of all.

Many of our staff are used to working from home and remotely and are able to respond to emails. Please stay in contact and bear with us while we adapt to new working ways. You can still contact us through our general enquiries email and phone number at or 01786 594 128.

We’re encouraging anyone at home with an outdoor space to take some time to enjoy it if they can. Look out for bumblebees or plant some seeds for our pollinators.

You can also keep in touch with us through our social media feeds on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Membership and merchandise

Although our offices are closed, you can still become a member. More details on how to do this can be found here. New members will get an online confirmation and full access to the online member portal, exclusive offer and member magazine, as well as the ability to sign up to our online e-news. We will issue membership packs when government guidance permits. Merchandise orders will also be distributed when permitted.

Trust events cancelled until early June

Following government guidance, we have decided that all Trust events involving staff and registered volunteers scheduled for March, April and May must be cancelled. This includes both indoor and outdoor activities.

We will review arrangements for future months in due course in light of any updates to government guidance and share updates on our website and social media channels and by email to those registered with us.
