Tree-mendous cards on sale

CHRISTMAS cards remembering an iconic Irton tree are still on sale.

A batch of 500 cards, bearing a snow-covered image of the felled beech tree have been printed to raise funds for the Irton Tree Foundation.

The cards have been produced to help cover legal costs incurred by protesters aiming to save the tree, which was cut down in October.

The tree was thrust into the national spotlight as five campaigners staged sit-in protests to try and save the cherished beech.

The cards are £2 per pack of five and for more information contact (01723) 862473.
