Hello everyone,
here is the latest on what's happening at Arthurs and Cedars Woods :Still
LOTS of time to get down there and bodies urgently needed.


(sorry this is only in note form - I think it's understandable)

A bailiff (called Pikey) fell out of a tree on Fri night (i think)
he shouldn't have been up a tree
he was near the river trying to stop people putting put up a walkway
2 people got in on Fri night
walkways got chopped on sat by climbers
incl walkway to get in over river and the next ones incl
all walkways chopped round witches hat (nearest treehouse to river)
they have taken down 1/2 treehouses on AW
1 person evicted on Sat
1 left on Sat
the 2 that came in have left and want to get in again

bailiffs will send up bacon butties (YUK)but won't let proper food be passed
a local  has been getting water sent in but no food
she is going to hassle undersherrif

started cutting down Cedars(we think)
will be chopping tomorrow probably
Moss wood too ?

lots of noisy generators are around

tunnel crew built steps down to tunnel
done nothing else to tunnel

it is fluffy but slow

Craig leach used to work for airport now works for undersherriff - nasty
piece of work

National Trust Estate office 01625 523012
FEEL FREE TO phone these guys and ask why they are not protecting our
heritage and why they are letting the climbers use spikes to climb the trees

Paul Rutter  is the contact in the National Trust (travesty)
climbers using spikes on treehouseless trees
that aren't coming down
"airport and bailiffs are showing obvious contempt for nature and a wanton
desire for profit"
 apparently NT are cross and chasing this up

There is going to be some sort of action tomorrow, don't know what yet,
it may relate to them not letting food and and to the trees getting spiked.
More actions likely - end of this week maybe
Please call the number below to find out more or to get involved
(if you want to be removed from this contact list please email me, otherwise
I'll keep emailling you)
