SAVE OUR BEES: Newsletter set to be released by campaign group fighting to get Bees back on track

A FANS newsletter is set to be launched by a campaigning group hoping to save the world famous Coventry Bees speedway team.

Designed to build up a contact list in all parts of the area, it is hoped the newsletter will attract the attention of local authorities while while keeping fans informed about what is going on behind the scenes to get the Bees back on track.

Supporters are asked to provide their favourite memory of Coventry Stadium since it opened its doors to the Bees in 1928.

Thousands of memorable races, hundreds of jaw-dropping meetings, and dozens of victorious seasons have epitomised Bees’ history in the city.

Campaigners have already met with Rugby Borough Council leader, Coun Michael Stokes, and further meetings are planned with other key members of the Council.

They also highlighted the importance of time should the club look to return to racing in 2018 – campaigners’ efforts are directed towards this target.

Organiser of the newsletter, Steve Jones, said: “We’re now putting together a database for our first newsletter.

“We’re asking for fans to contact the website or reply our posts on the ‘Save Coventry Speedway’ Facebook page.

“This service is for speedway and stox fans.”
