Sheffield council votes to fell trees planted in memory of war dead | UK news | The Guardian

Patrick Barkham “Sheffield council claim it will cost £500,000 to “save” 41 war memorial trees. They are either (a) imbeciles to accept such an extortionate quote or (b) liars. Which is it?”

    Hi there, Is it not possible to raise a meeting to discuss the council and seek dismissal for such damage to the City. As you may know I was born there 90 years ago and used to proud to say I came from Sheffield. When I mention it now they just remark ‘it is going down the drain’ the City is becoming a laughing stock, when you see people on TV they say they are from South Yorkshire When I write to the Council I do not receive an acknowledgement, makes me wonder who these ‘people are’, obviously they must have no pride in the ‘City of Sheffield’ Only wish I lived nearer. Now you have no Local Paper to voice an opinion. do you really think they will be re-elected next time round or is the populace as a whole of the same mind Keep up the good work. Peter Unwin
