Tree planting shows VFW ideas are taking root (June 18, 2010)
A RETURN to the days when the approach roads to the town centre of Warminster were tree-lined took another step forward today.
Two cherry tree hybrids and two hawthorn tree hybrids were planted
today alongside the Boreham Road close to the junction with Woodcock
It was a flaming morning in June when arborist Mark Woodman and
his assistant James Swadlow arrived with the specially cultivated trees
that should survive being planted at this time of year.
"I said how pleased I was to see them at work," said Paul
"I told them that I was one of the residents who had
campaigned to see a return to look that existed years ago."
Paul is co-author of visionforwarminster.co.uk which has a chapter calling for a community makeover.
'Those who have lived in the town for many years will recall that
Boreham Road used to have many more trees on its 'sunny side' that it
'....We believe there should be a concerted effort to restore the beauty of this mile long road.'
