What a transformation
This community project is now nearing completion but there is still a small amount of work left to do. Its creation has only been made possible by the support and generosity of the residents of Lower Peover, and the surrounding communities, It has been created to delight and inspire children, and all those who are still young at heart.
The tree has had to be roofed to protect the soft interior from further water damage. This roof also incorporates an owl box, a bat box and a nesting box within its construction.
Several people have raised the question about the presence of the canon. If you are wondering about it too, please remember this is a tree for boys as well as girls, and it is a ‘Tree of Imagination’……..
Why do YOU think it’s there?
This project has only been made possible with the wonderful help from the following people, and the communities grateful thanks are especially due to them:-
Tim Burgess – Chainsaw Sculptor
Tom Ollier and Mick Plant – local Master Joiners
Roy Chesworth, Atlantic Timbers – Wood and wood care products
John Bryant – Wood Turner for his cannon and finials
Also, invaluable at the very start of the project:-
Anthony Edwards – local builder, who provided the scaffolding
David Willis – security fencing.
Enormous thanks are also due to everyone who took so much time and care to create all the wonderful doors and windows you can see.
Lower Peover’s Tree of imagination has been awarded a ‘Little Gem’ award by the Community Pride Competition 2015.
