Today I received a sweet gift. Some of the first labelled jars of the Committees’ honey! Blog followers will recall that the European Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions have installed two bee hives on the roof of their shared flagship headquarters building (the Jacques Delors building). Now, following an in-house competition, the jarred honey is ready for consumption and sports a label that includes the slogan ‘the bees are back in town.’ For those not of a certain age, this is a witty corruption of a Thin Lizzie hit from the 1970s. You can hear it here. And, yes, it’s true; the bees are back in town – at least our part of it.
