Plight of the Bumblebee

I've  become a bit obsessed with bees. 
I have noticed a few articles recently highlighting the drastic decline of the bee population in this country and I guess I was inspired to produce a new design to go on one of our buckets. For those of you who may pick up on detail, these are definitely bumblebees rather than honey bees, but hey, they were easier to cut out. 
I'm quite pleased with it, so may produce some bee-bags too.

Bag IOW0064

Now, this is what we mean when we ask "Where has your Dr Bean's Bag Been?" This photo has been sent in by Will and Janno whilst they were in Bequia, Friendship Bay. This is one of the first batch of bags that we produced, with the number on the outside - I think this style has now become a classic!

Coffee at Newtown Old Town Hall

We were pleased to be asked to provide coffee at an event for the Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust at Newtown Old Town Hall. This property is owned by the National Trust and has an intriguing history. The area of Newtown Creek is also a renowned bird watching area and offers great scenic walks.

New Bag Numbers

The identification numbers that go on our bags have been through a few designs since we started, but this is the latest version. We have decided that the buckets should be given a number too, as shown in the last post.
The new labels are bigger and also have the website address on. Of course, this is all so that you can send in photos of your bags on holiday and we can publish them here on the Speakeasy 
(Ok, there's no prizes. . . it's just for fun). Also, it doesn't have to be on an exotic holiday. It doesn't have to be on holiday even. If you want to send a photo of your bag on it's way to work, then that's fine.
