I PROMISED TO REMIND YOU ALL ABOUT THE NEXT EVENTS AROUND THE CITY WIDE AND LOCAL STREET TREES CAMPAIGNS. THE CITY WIDE CAMPAIGN CONTINUES TO BE ALL OVER THE NATIONAL NEWS.
Firstly, next SAVE DORE, TOTLEY AND BRADWAY TREES MEETING at Totley Library, Baslow Road at 7.30pm on MONDAY 16TH JANUARY. This will be the first time that people from the whole group have met. There will be
refreshments. Lots to discuss and it should be a friendly event in pleasant surroundings. I'll send out a rough agenda if I can beforehand, so if there's anything you would like discussed, let me know. Small car park at back on Lemont Road or 97 bus stops nearby on Baslow Road.
In the meantime, there are other important city events too, all either on the 7th JAN or in the case of the exhibition, starting then:
A HUMAN YELLOW RIBBON: wear something yellow and link hands round Town Hall, 7th January, 11.45am. We need lots and lots of people! This is likely to be incredible and has already been the subject of an article in the Star.
SHEFFIELD STREET TREES CAMPAIGN WORKSHOP, 2.15 - 5pm, Victoria Hall Methodist Church, Norfolk Street, Sheffield S1 2JB.This is organised by Rich Ward who says: 'A workshop event for those interested in vision, strategy and future actions to help save Sheffield's healthy mature street trees from unnecessary felling.Find out more about the background
to street tree felling plans, the campaigns to save healthy mature trees and contribute your ideas and knowledge to informing future directions through facilitated small group discussion approaches.' There are 60-80 places and if you want to go, contact Rich at Rbward66@gmail.com
IN CELEBRATION OF TREES, a photography exhibition of street trees, 7th - 11th January, Bank Street Arts, 32-40 Bank Street, S1 2DS, 11am - 4pm. This looks stunning.
ALSO, THE RESULTS OF THE COUNCIL SURVEY FOR TOTLEY AND BRADWAY AREA (below) are in and I attach them here. These show which streets will have their trees referred to the Independent Tree Panel. To date, the Council have saved hardly any trees on recommendation from the Panel but at least it delays things and there's a bit more of a chance to get opposition across. Well done to those who leafletted about this - whatever the result for the streets.
We may need people from streets which will be referred to the Panel to come forward in order to support you in sending evidence on why individual trees should be kept (only residents from those streets may give evidence!)
And from Ann, I attach a great NEW POSTER for attaching to threatened trees along with the yellow ribbon [see below]
Don't forget, to keep up with news, you can always find it on the SAVE Dore, Totley and Bradway Facebook page.
Happy New Year to you all,
