Old Knobbley-- a special tree!

I thought that you would like to know that Old Knobbley, the ancient Oak tree that lives in Mistley, is one of ten finalists  in The Woodland Trust’s contest to find England’s Favourite Tree of the Year. They were selected from over 200 trees that were   nominated by the public.
Old Knobbley is special. He has a website, a presence on Facebook and a beautifully illustrated children’s book about the events that he has lived through during his long life.  My daughter Morag is passionate about growing and protecting trees.   This is top of her list of “must do" activities to help our environment,
On your Farm devoted part of their program on Monday to The Woodland Trust. Since then there has been a lot of interest from the  national and local media.
Please support Old Knobbley NOW by voting on The Woodland Trust's website.   You have until  November 3rd.  All you need is an email address.

Meanwhile you can keep up to date with events by looking at his special Vote for Me page on Facebook.

Please share this with your friends and colleagues and encourage them to vote.
