Vigil for the trees


Come and honour the beauty of our woodland before it is lost to us. Join us for a vigil at the beautiful spot by the River Colne where the Red Rebel Brigade bore witness at our 'Stand for the Trees' walk in December.

Now that Boris has given the go ahead for HS2, contractors are moving in to take our woodland from us in the Colne Valley and across the UK and we need to publicly acknowledge what will be lost.

Bring a red ribbon to adorn a tree, your love of nature and a friend.

This is a family-friendly opportunity to reconnect with nature, enjoy the beauty of the nature reserve and show your support once more for the trees.

Meet on the green bridge over the River Colne in Denham Country Park from 3.30pm, the vigil will begin by the Ancient Ford at 4 and you can join for as long as you wish. Please wear wellies as it will likely be very wet.

If you have queries you can view the Facebook event here or ask on Telegram if you do not have Facebook.

Please watch Erin Brockovich on Netflix asap if you haven’t already. It highlights serious issues with a certain water supply that we are about to experience in 22% of Londons water supply. A recent Freedom of Information request by Sarah Green has exposed that Chromium 6 is apparent in pile drives into our aquifers which they have began just this month. Code Red Alert and media silence. Watch the film!!

Cofferdams in the lakes are showing it already from the concrete plugs already in, legal limit is in the uk 0.05 in drinking water approx in Europe 0.02 America 1. In this lake with cofferdams it’s 45!!!!! We need help.

HS2 are not using Cr(VI) they have been surprised to find such high levels across so many of their sites. They think it is being generated as concrete is drying. The levels in the cofferdams were from the concrete plugs curing. The whole of the Colne Valley Viaduct is across drinking water protected zones. Next HS2 step is the giant concrete pour into 300 deep holes in the aquifer for the Viaduct foundations. This has potential to poison thousands of peoples water.
