The Avenues Newsletter (editor: A Crummay) carried a short article with this information. It stated that the reason funding was withdrawn was that Kevin had "decided to start work without safety precautions with regards to using a chainsaw" and that this was "unlawful".
Kevin did not use a chainsaw. The chainsaw was wielded by a fully qualified professional chainsaw operator. In fact, it was operated for a few minutes only, to provide some interesting footage for the BBC Look North TV crew.
Kevin has had letters and phone calls of support from many people, residents of the Avenues and non-residents.
He has been asked by a group of people living in a leafy area of Lincoln to come and carve their trees! They had seen the news item on Look North, and were delighted with the sound of his new project.
