AN ash tree in Kingsgate Park, Yate, that was brought down by strong winds will be turned into a practical artwork.

AN ash tree in Kingsgate Park, Yate, that was brought down by strong winds will be turned into a practical artwork.
The main trunk will be carved into a feature that children can play on, now that its branches have been either turned into chippings, kept for woodland path edging or put aside for informal seating.
Meanwhile, the trunk has been made stable and sharp edges rounded off while a decision is taken on how best to give it another use.
