FURZEDOWN WINTER MARKET
KEEP FURZEDOWN TIDY
STOP THE CHOP CAMPAIGN
Campaign to Save Chestnut Avenue on Tooting Common, a historic avenue of 150 year old Chestnut trees at the heart of the common. Sadly the trees were chopped despite condemnation from as far up as the Mayor's office, BBC News, ITV News, The Guardian, The Evening Standard and the local community. A policy of cost covering over environmental benefits.
We have gathered our campaign archive and artwork made by the community in an art exhibition called 'That Old Chestnut' at Sprout Gallery, Tooting. The show is a wonderful example of community standing and working together to document our Chestnut Avenue and which is hugely missed by young and old.
