 In this busy city, we take delight in opening the garden gate and planting veg or digging up old weeds or planting an orchard for future apple scrumpers. We feel it when someone’s sick or if they need a little company. That’s kind of what we are about, it’s people first and last, with us and some gardening in between. .How sad then to hear that these 100 year old neglected trees, are to be cut down, despite protests and objections by the Keep MIlton Green residents and friends. Everyone over-ruled, and now already the demolition begins, no time for appeal, and despite national campaigns to grow more trees, to house birds and insects and soak up flood waters. How sad are we to lose more trees. Join us at St James hospital ( near Shaw Trust) Sunday 31st January at 10.30 to dress a few trees for the birds, and be in the picture for the jolly old album.
