Battle to save trees as work starts on fence

CAMPAIGNERS delayed the start of work to install a 1.5 km long and 2m high metal fence at Stoke Lodge playing fields on behalf of Cotham School.

The We Love Stoke Lodge protesters fear for the future of trees on the site and have pleaded with the school to work with them to find a solution.

The school says that a fence is needed at the site, which is leased from Bristol City Council, to keep children and staff safe during PE lessons. 

Work has now begun on erecting the controversial barrier, but the war of words between the protesters and supporters of the school has continued.

Emma Burgess, of We Love Stoke Lodge, has urged the school to meet community members to talk about how the open space can be shared safely for the benefit of everyone.
