How are you proposing to measure the tree's? Height, circumference?? And how will you be recording their value??

Please can you explain how this will be done as I am unclear how measurements will be taken and value's assigned.

How do you mean doomed, like we're all doomed or that area is doomed??

So some simple questions asked about how you were going to proceed but no answers have been forthcoming, rather a photo. If you say you are the Friends then you should be forthcoming with answers, and they really are very simple.

Latest photo in Camberwell Old Cemetery Wood. This is what four years of burial looks like. Four years. This could have been a sports field or a community orchard or left alone and continue to be a meadow and grow into a wood. Just steps from Honor Oak Train Station. And a photo of what is will become.

Four years. And then what? Then Southwark Council continues to cut down the 12-acre Camberwell Old Cemetery Wood on Forest Hill Road (Underhill and Woodvale Roads). They have already destroyed acres of the Honor Oak Rec and on the side of One Tree Hill for new burial grounds. Sign the petition, email someone. Do something more. http://www.savesouthwarkwoods.org.uk/

hey, what a great job Southwark are making of providing much needed burial space for the borough and Beyond. Yes four years of burials in nice neat rows looks so good don't you think? And even better being a stone's throw from Honor Oak Park Station, making visiting so convenient.

It could have been many things but burial space it is and burial space it remains. Four years and then what, well more burial space of course!!

Yes that no doubt that is the plan to clear the overgrown ground in COC as was always intended and used for burials, which there will never be a shortage of.

And as yo have said elsewhere "Yes, we haven’t run the the best or most coherent campaigns, basically because I am involved.
I have found out late in life that I rub people the wrong way. I was annoying to people in New York and it’s the same here."

At least time has allowed you to learn these things about yourself, so something positive has come out of the experience, as they say life is full of learning, some more than others.

To Lewisham Residents: Camberwell New Cemetery and Camberwell Old Cemetery are in Southwark but it used by Lewisham residents. If you want some role in what happens to our greenspace, you must take some action. Call me and we can talk about what you can do to save our world. Photo just feet from Honor Oak station, taken March 2019.

It's called prior planning and I fully and whole heartily commend the work of the Council.
