Waiting 5 years, rescuing it from near skipping and lugging this tree across Leicester on my back, was all worth it - it won the prestigious "People's Choice Award" at the Green Light Festival!! (Voted by a small but obviously well refined group of voters.) I'm glad it got this final outing before it goes/gets lugged to it's final resting place at Folville Primary. Well done all 150 children (now teenagers!) who made it!
Some choice quotes from the kids (they're written all over the tree, inspired by a 500 year old tree we visited):
- In the future I would like to stop terrorism.
- There will be a new Skittles flavour.
- I hope I don't get shot.
- Will the BMX track be bigger?
- Artists should invent more animals.
