Words: Roger Cliff, Bramley

A sad end to an old cherry blossom tree on Bramley Park, thanks to Storm Arwen.

Bramley folk of a certain age will remember that next to the former Rose Garden, there was a bowling green.

I can’t remember it being used, and over many years had fallen into a poor state.

About 10 years ago they decided to make the park bigger, by digging up this old bowling green, and creating a small kiddies’ football pitch.

There was quite a bit of controversy when they dug up the lovely hedges that surrounded the old green, but did leave these two cherry blossom trees. Now we just have the one.
