Stay of execution for another day, as protesters are threatened with arrest on Tuesday, but developers promise to start the destruction of the lime trees on the Walks on Wednesday. Can we stop the chop again? Protests start from 8:30am on the Embankment and Walks.
Arriving as the fencing was being erected on Tuesday North Northants councillor Tim Allebone (Con, Croyland and Swanspool) said: “We seem to be systematically trashing Wellingborough. I want as many trees as possible saving. I am not happy about this. I appreciate we need the eastern bypass but this is an historic established route into town. Attractive and perfectly healthy trees are being decimated.
This video shows the view from above of all the trees. Let’s keep up the fight to stop this unlawful destruction of our trees and historic Walks.
