Emergency Tree Removal

Following the events of a couple of weeks ago, when one of three old Poplar trees between Brook Close and the A303 adjacent to Frog Alley (The path between Church Street bridge and the A303) blew down with significant damage to property, the remaining two trees have been condemned by Wiltshire Council as being unsound.   They will be felled by contractors and removed between the morning of Tuesday 14th April 2020 and the afternoon of Friday 17th April 2020.

As a consequence, for safety reasons, compounded by the need for social distancing, Frog Alley will need to be closed and villagers should not attempt to use it.  Clearly, this activity is likely to cause some noise and disruption in the vicinity, but this is necessary to remove a clear public safety hazard and a threat to the telephone and broadband access of a significant part of the village.
