We have discovered a rather impressive bees nest in a bush near our house.  We would like to get rid of it (they had stung me several times before I reaised that there was a nest) but given the reported shortage of bees, we feel that it would be better to find a local beekeeper who could take it.  Any suggestions?

Try contacting the local York beekeeping association at secretary@yorkbeekeepers.com and also see webpage http://www.yorkbeekeepers.com/swarms.html for some local contact names and numbers.

Many thanks for that.  I'll buzz off and call them now (Sorry!)
