Therefore without blowing further on my trumpet, I will award it this week to Lambeth Council.
Their attitude to Mulberry trees, instead of wishing to go round the Mulberry bushes the council wishes to obliterate them; as the residents who live near Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens have recently found out.
Two mulberry trees that mark one of the entrances to the park are to be chopped down by the council.
In order to "improve" the park.
Jeff Raggett, the Cultural Arts Development Manager at Lambeth Council, explains all:
"The mulberry trees have red berries that will stain the new granite sets which will therefore require additional cleaning to maintain the newly paved surface."
Meanwhile, thanks to a private donation, plans are afoot to erect a £250K statue of Guru Basavanna in the vicinity, who lived between 1134 and 1196 (not in Lambeth though).
Maybe some of that money could be used to save the trees as well, if Lambeth are so determined to be pig headed about this?
