Hurrah for the trees in Lewes town centre

Share this article

In your September 6 edition you show a splendid colour-view of Lewes High Street taken from near the river bridge and looking towards School Hill.

It demonstrates the importance of trees in town centres.

Almost in the same post was a leaflet from Friends of Lewes explaining their Lewes Urban Arboretum project.

Hurrah for trees and cheers that Lewes has a southern bypass and that east-west traffic (Brighton to Eastbourne and back) does not go through Lewes as originally planned.

John Eccles (and many of your readers) will recall how close Lewes came to being two towns, Lewes North and Lewes South, separated by a motorway.
