Today Wanstead’s Favourite Tree Blog reported two stories about Trees.
We at Wanstead and Rum would like to clear up a couple of things as they are publishing fake news.
Firstly the post about snapped trees on St Mary’s Drive… Those trees have been professionally cut down which is obvious from the images..
Secondly is about the Christmas Tree Amnesty from Redbridge Council.
Wanstead’s favourite fake news blog has reported that Redbridge Council have ‘Re-instated’ kerb side Christmas Tree Collection as part of the U-Turn from Redbridge to scrap the Garden Waste collection scheme from last year..
THIS IS NOT TRUE! Redbridge NEVER took away the Christmas Tree collection! See here for the original report from Redbridge on the (now cancelled) scheme: https://www.redbridge.gov.uk/redbridge-news/green-garden-waste-collections-are-changing/
The part you want to read is this:
We at Wanstead and Rum are annoyed by this. Publishing fake news in order to get hits on the website which leads to monetisation is greed. Wanstead and Rum will never host adverts nor ask you to sell your soul to the devil to only buy from retailers by clicking though our site.
We will be contacting Redbridge Council to advise them of the fake news posted.
Don’t worry folks, we will be back to the satirical posts very soon.
