In a recent interview on BBC 1 Breakfast a resident of Walthamstow, Rachel Summers, talked about how she has been chalking the names of trees and plants on the pavement along with a little description to help make people’s daily exercise a little bit more interesting. Thanks to a local resident and Planning Tree Officer for Lewisham Borough Council, Valerie Harris, these have also started appearing around Hilly Fields.
We think that this is a lovely idea and so if you would like to do the same in your area, please have a go. Just make sure of three things;
- You are sure of the species
- You use the correct spelling
- You use chalk so they are not permanent.
Also please observe all social distancing and none essential travel regulations.
Feel free to post your photos here or use the hashtag #treesoflewisham on twitter.
It might make people’s daily permitted exercise that little bit more interesting!
