FRIENDS of Page Park have issued a warning to people not to panic if they see trees being felled at the Staple Hill beauty spot.

Thirteen trees are being removed in February and March for reasons including disease, storm damage and decay.

However, a scheme to plant 33 new trees has just got the go-head thanks to a £20,000 grant.

The cash has been secured by the Friends of Page Park from the People's Postcode Lottery with additional money from the Forest of Avon Trust.

The money will means new varieties of trees can be added to ensure all year round colour.

There are notices up in the park detailing what is happing during the tree management programme.
