Tree down at Coombe Wood gardens

Storm Katie from last night brought down a fir-tree on the edge of Coombe Wood onto conduit lane near the car park. Fortunately nobody was passing by and no cars were damaged.

The destructive power of the storm wrenched the base of the tree from the ground, causing large splinters of wood.

The storm also brought down trees in Addington Hills and Heathfield as seen below.

The wet weather can also make walking hazardous as  a woman walking in Heathfield slipped on a grass verge. Croydon Central Parks was nearby and offered tissues and sympathy. Fortunately  the lady was not hurt, only a muddy jacket and injured pride. The skid mark was evident on the ground, so please do take care while walking over wet grass.
