Shaftesbury’s ‘Bee Lady’ Is Leaving

Brigit Strawbridge Howard put Shaftesbury on the map with her highly acclaimed debut wildlife book ‘Dancing with Bees’.

It earned Brigit the nickname ‘the Shaftesbury Bee Lady’, but the French Mill Lane resident says she’s made the tough decision to leave our town after eight years. Brigit and husband Rob are relocating to Cornwall to be near family.

As you’ll hear, Brigit is facing the dilemma of what to call her next book, which was going to be named after the Shaftesbury street where she lives.
