Draw the Living Memorial – 11th November 2017

There will be a mass paint off held on Western Road, Crookes, to commemorate Armistice Day, and to celebrate the trees that were planted as a living war memorial.

The trees were planted in remembrance of pupils from the local primary school who died in the First World War.

23 of the trees are now under threat of felling under the councils “Streets Ahead” contract.

The event will commence with a service of remembrance. There will then be a silent procession along lower Western Road, ending at the war memorial plaque on the wall of Westways School.

The art event will then follow with participants collecting materials and getting stuck into their drawings or paintings up and down the road.

It is intended that every memorial tree be represented by the end of the day. There’ll be a chance to see lots of artists of all abilities (including some professionals) at work, plus there’ll be a Family Activity Area with art, craft and tree related activities to participate in. It should be a great day!

It’s not too late for people to register to participate in drawing or painting a tree – if interested please email: streettreeartsheffield@gmail.com

Date:           11 November 2017
Time:          10:00 am till 4:00 pm
Location:   Western Road, Crookes, Sheffield.

Injunction Trial Result Summary

In October Sheffield council decided to take prominent tree campaigners Calvin Payne and Councillor Alison Teal to court again.

The council alleged that they had broken the injunction forbidding peacefully protesting against the felling of healthy street trees.

The trial began on Friday 27th October and sentencing was carried out on Friday 3rd November.

Alison Teal

Alison has been fastidious in respecting the terms of the injunction, and as such the evidence against her was weak. The judge decided she had not breached the order and the case against her was dismissed on the opening day of the trial.

Calvin Payne

Calvin was found guilty of breaching the injunction. This consisted of one count of encouraging others to breach the injunction by posting on Facebook, as well as two other counts of preventing the felling of healthy street trees by standing within the safety zone.
He has been given a 3 month suspended sentence, and ordered to pay £16,000 in costs.

“I’m slightly relieved to be here. As you could hear in there, it was a close run thing. Whatever happens here today, the issue won’t have gone away.”

“I apologise to the judge for being caught up in this and I have no contempt for the judge or the court but I do for the policy that we are fighting and I’m not ashamed or retracting my actions.”

Calvin Payne

For further information, please see the media links for the 3rd November, provided on our campaign timeline.
