SAVE OUR TREES – Stop The Destruction

Local campaigners have committed to continue their protests to save as many trees in The Walks as possible in London Road. On Monday the focus of the contractors turns to The Embankment area. These beautiful trees could all be gone by the end of the day; so we will all be there again from 8am to save our trees!

On Sunday we held a meeting in the car park of The Embankment to update everyone and to galvanise support to save the trees on the Nene side of the roundabout and end of The Walks. Over 70 concerned local people of all ages turned out to hear passionate speeches from Marion Turner-Hawes and Valerie Anslow.

After the meeting everyone held a vigil under the all but doomed trees, thronging along the roadside hand in hand, fully supported by passing drivers. PurpleVision captured this moment of reflection perfectly as he so often does. See

You might ask why we carry on fighting to save our historic limes on The Walks, to protect all of the nature they support and the joy they have given to local people for over 100 years. Well for some inspiration the Northants Telegraph has captured the years of joy and life these pillars of Wellingborough have brought by clicking here.
