So, here’s a chance to use your new-found lobbying skills… There’s a petition about trees in Alexandra Park that, we think, deserves your signature.
“Around 280 trees that have been a feature of the park for 40-108 years are going to be felled to make room for planters and numerous tennis courts. Alexandra Park has always been a necessary green oasis for wildlife and people in a built up urban area. Please sign the petition to show Manchester City council and Heritage Lottery Fund how many people object and to save these beautiful trees!”
