Congratulations to Craig Coulthard, who has won a £460K lottery funded commission for "Artists Taking The Lead", to chop down some trees to make way for a football pitch as one of 12 art projects commissioned to celebrate the London 2012 Olympics.
The "Forest Pitch" will be located in the Borders area; the trees will be used to create a stand, goalposts and shelter.
Two football matches will be played, the pitch will then be left to return to nature.
Errrm...call be a boring old accountant, but isn't this rather a waste of resources (both environmental and financial)?
Olympic Medals won during the Beijing 2008 Olympics
