During the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, I like many others are immensely appreciative of the tremendous hard work and sacrifice that our NHS staff and all keyworkers are tirelessly committing themselves to.
I have set up a fundraiser for a lasting commemoration of the work that these members of our community have put in. The commemoration will take the form of a cherry blossom tree-lined avenue in Birkenhead Park.
I’ve been given the green-light by the council so start fundraising. I’m sure you’ll agree that not only will this be a fitting tribute, but will also enhance the park for everyone.
Many thanks for your “tree-mendous” support – it means a lot to me and I hope that it will mean a lot to the people who we are celebrating.
Apologies in advance for the following night time photographs – it was a very tricky environment in which to take photos! The lighting would have been perfect for the moody scenes while filming, but for taking stills, it wasn’t ideal – on top of that, the machine they used for recreating the Victorian London smog was working overtime!
