For those of you who don't know, the irreplaceable Freeman's Wood is in real peril. It has now been almost entirely fenced off by its new-ish owners, who are based in Hong Kong.
Just a few more yards of metal fence and access for birders, walkers, and other fans of this smart habitat will be impossible. More importantly the habitat itself is under serious threat.
To find out more about the fate of the wood, and how to help avert it, come along to this Sunday's meeting at the Marsh community centre on Willow Lane. 6PM. See you there?
In the meantime--the recent tree preservation order placed on the wood has been challenged by the owners. Please send an email to the council via firstname.lastname@example.org saying that you welcome and support the preservation order.
