Appalling tree damage in Bloxwich Promenade Gardens

Further to The Bloxwich Telegraph’s recent report about the shocking vandalism to trees in the Promenade Gardens off Bloxwich High Street, a story which will be followed up shortly, Bloxwich Town Centre Management and Bloxwich Business Partnership are appealing to local people for help in saving and protecting these trees from further vandalism.

Nikki Rolls, Walsall Council’s Bloxwich Regeneration Officer, has spoken to The Bloxwich Telegraph in the hope that residents and traders will come forward to join forces is assisting in the necessary work, which is scheduled for this Thursday.

Nikki told us:

“The Council’s urban forestry team has arranged a volunteers day to shield the worst damaged and other trees by installing bamboo fencing around the trees this Thursday from 10.30am.

“We need your help – if you are able to volunteer some time to help us protect these trees please meet us at 10.30 by the Bloxwich Fountain on Thursday.”

All equipment is being provided for use during the day, and volunteers need not be tree experts or botanists – just willing to do a little work to help save an important part of the green and leafy environment and historic heritage of Bloxwich.

If you need further information, you can telephone Nikki on 01922 654324.
