Protest planned after oaks chopped down
THE FELLING of some mighty Sussex oaks in the Horsham area has caused some outrage locally.
The huge greenfield development at Broadbridge Heath had already got permission to go ahead, so it was perhaps to be expected.
But a few dry paragraphs in the local paper and the reality of what is actually involved are a long way apart and the destruction has woken a few people up in the area, it would seem.
With more massive development schemes planned for that area, and all across Sussex, more and more of us are saying we are not prepared to stand back and watch it happen.
With this in mind, Save Our Sussex Alliance is holding a protest at the site where the trees were taken down.
This is on Saturday April 28, at 2pm, next to Newbridge Nurseries on the A264 at Broadbridge Heath - not far from the A24 underpass and on the road leading from Horsham towards Billingshurst.
Be there and be heard!
