Save Frecheville's WW2 Memorial Trees

This petition had 3,337 supporters

Sheffield City Council are planning on removing some of the memorial trees on Heathfield Road, Frecheville, Sheffield 12.

The road leads from the entrance to Frecheville up to the Community Centre and is an avenue of trees planted after world war 2 to remember those men who gave their lives and lived in the local area. There are no houses on the road, meaning the trees are prominent in the area.

There is a also remembrance plaque in the community centre listing all of the 19 men who died in the war as well as a permanent memorial that was erected in August 2015 after a campaign by local resident Bill Carline. This memorial is directly behind the Community Centre.

This petition is to protest about the removal of some of the trees, they are all in the middle of large grass verges, well away from both the road and the pavement.

Memorial trees are a permanent reminder, meant to survive for as long as the natural life of the tree. They are not meant to be replaced by a 'new' tree version. Please help us prevent the removal of these trees, so many local residents have grown up with the trees in their lives and want to see them remain as an assett in the community.
