Having lived in Washington for the last 40 years since moving from Hebburn in 1976 and living close to the actual village of Washington there is a snippet of news on the grapevine. |
Most people will know that George Washington cut down the cherry tree on the village green and that president carter planted a new cherry tree on his visit here in 1976.
Well, sadly, that tree has also been cut down by unknown person. The good news is that president trump is aware of the problem and will be coming here on his official visit to plant a new cherry tree. He is Aware that from the top of penshaw monument you can actually see the village green where said cherry was cut down and will be personally paying for a new pedestrian tunnel to be built from Washington village green to penshaw monument.
The new tunnel will go under the river wear by some 600 feet and will have lifts at either end, an escalator at both end ends and also a cycle lane. It is expected to be completed by the end of 2018.
Thanks to a Don Scott for this fake news.
