Save Meath Gardens

25 trees in this stunning Park are earmarked for destruction. Extreme pruning works will leave them without any foliage at all - just trunks and branches. Some will be removed and lost forever. We the undersigned ask Tower Hamlets Council to preserve the beauty of Meath Gardens park for an East End community. It was established in 1894 for the East End’s poor by the landscape gardener Fanny Wilkinson - Britain's first woman landscape gardener. She wanted the park to be a green, tree filled space for London’s poor to enjoy and their children to play in. Help us protect her legacy and preserve the animal and bird habitats of the Park in this the 120th year of the Park's transformation from Victoria Park Cemetery. The park was transformed from a "gruesome state" as the Cemetery to a green shady space full of trees and a playground for a poor East End community. Please do not return the park to a miserable graveyard - this time for trees. Do not fell, lop, top or conduct EXTREME pruning on the trees of Meath Gardens.
