Monday April 27th. Talk by Dave Lucas (‘Chainsaw Dave’)

From the Woodland Centre on how a 300 year-old oak tree on the Little Breach allotments, which was blown down in the storms of February 2014, was transformed into the First World War memorial statue in Litten Gardens set up to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the armistice in November 2018. This carving is only one of many that the Centre has made from recycled wood, and there will undoubtedly be a chance to see pictures of many of them.
