Text of Petition
We the undersigned call upon the National Assembly for Wales to urge the Welsh Government to consider our proposal to officially name the much needed, & historic, new road section of the A483, the ‘Newtown Brimmon Oak bypass’.
In recognition of the enormously positive publicity and attention that one of the most significant ‘Natural Monuments’ of Montgomeryshire, namely the Brimmon Oak, has brought to Newtown, to the region and to Wales.
Firstly becoming ‘Welsh Tree of the year’, followed by winning the title of ‘UK Tree of the year’ shown on national TV , and ultimately, in being awarded second place in the highly prestigious European Tree of the year contest (2017) in a much reported ceremony in the EU Parliament Brussels. We feel that this culturally significant ancient Welsh Oak tree that has now become known throughout Wales, the UK & indeed around the globe be honoured in this ultimately fitting manner.
