Call to stop kids climbing old tree

Have your say

A HOLBEACH parish councillor is calling for an old tree to be protected.

Coun Yvonne Jones said she had a “big concern” about the redwood in the grounds of Stukeley Hall, which she estimated to be about 200-years-old.

Speaking at a parish council meeting on Monday, she said: “It’s getting ruined because everyone is letting children climb on it.”

However, Coun Carol Johnson said the council had not made allowances for it in the budget.
