Brockley Society’s tree wardens ran a Christmas Hamper Prize Draw at Brockley Market on Lewisham Way to raise funds for Brockley street trees and to talk to people about the importance of trees. A splendid 205.07 was raised and Ian, with pink ticket No.51, walked away with the magnificent hamper.
Our street trees are an incredibly valuable feature of our local environment. Brockley would not be the wonderful place it is without its street trees. Our trees soften the edges of our bricks and mortar streets. They keep us in touch with the passing seasons, cheering us as they green up and bloom in spring, cool and shade us in the heat of summer, and provide a riot of autumn colour. They help to keep our air fresh and clean, and they shield us from the noise and nuisance of traffic. And of course, they provide shelter and food for our diverse local bird population and other species.
Trees form a major campaign of Brockley Society. Keep updated with our progress on our marvellous blog: www.brockleystreettrees.blogspot.co.uk
