HAS anyone else been shocked and saddened by the sheer butchery of the six beautiful trees that have been at the Golden Farm pub for as long as anyone can remember?

Now all that is left of them are horrible branchless dark corpses. Whoever gave permission for this vandalism should be ashamed of themselves, if indeed permission was given.

The view now from my flat is so depressing and come summer time I will no longer have the enjoyable sight of six wonderful trees in full leaf.

It’s just another act of someone who does not appear to give a dam about what other people think about our area.
