I hope you’re all well.
The time has come to talk trees. Or more importantly – greenery.
George kindly offered to offer me a place on a garden workshop a few weeks ago, but I wasn’t able to get time off work unfortunately. So maybe you have all covered this ground so to speak.
As you probably know – residents of Hackney Wick lost their fantastic trees and gardens all along the tow-path when the wall went up. Although we could see some of the taller trees that we planted for a while, they have now all been felled.
As this is the first winter without our community planted trees – the full impact of what happened has just hit us all with dreadful gloom.
Not only has all the greenery gone - it has been replaced with mud, machinery and construction. To go from one extreme to another in such a short time is having a profoundly negative effect of Leabank Square, especially those of us lucky enough to have waterfront views.
So my question is fairly simple, and I hope it has an equally fairly simple answer. Are there any plans to re-plant the tow-path along the Lea River Navigational Canal soon? By soon – I mean very soon.
