The weather over past few days have taken their toll on the tree in The Boulevard. The main trunk has a sizeable split where very large branch used to be. Some have claimed the tree was struck by lightning.
The photograph below was taken by local business owner Gavin Feltham. Gavin has just opened a new business, Felthams Bespoke Hair Dressing for Men, which is located next to the Grabalaptop store in the former McDonald’s building. You can visit Feltham’s website here, felthams-hair.co.uk. Our thanks to Gavin for his permission to use his photograph.
It is now wrapped in red tape and the immediate area is cordoned off for public safety.
This is what the branch looked like during the summer, fingers crossed the remaining branches are sound and the tree can be saved.
