The last fields in Euston, picnic on 8th July

"Remember to tell your children once upon a time there were trees"

Across the country, people are organising picnics in their local parks on 8th July. A group of our supporters will be holding a picnic in Euston Square Gardens, just outside Euston Station.

The picnic will be from 2-5pm on Saturday 8th July, and they are inviting everyone along.

Unfortunately, it will be too late for St James Gardens, just round the corner from Euston, as HS2 Ltd will have taken over the gardens and put up hoardings already.  But the picnic’s organisers hope to make a trip round the corner at around 4pm, to say farewell.

Meanwhile supporters of the trees have been tying handcrafted scarfs round the trees  to mark their loss.
