New Peckham Rye tree carving unveiled

This morning we saw the new Peckham Rye tree carving being unveiled.  Huge credit to Morganico, the artist who created this wonderful landmark for our area.  Well done also to the local residents who had the idea and campaigned for it to go ahead.  As the local Councillors who voted through the funding for this project, Vikki, Renata and I are over the moon that it has turned out so well.

Here are some pics:

Classic councillor photo!

By the way...the wings at the top are a reference to poet and artist William Blake who, whilst on the Common, had visions  of "...a tree filled with angels, bright angelic wings bespangling every bough like stars"
