National Tree Week

19 December 2016

treeNewground’s Community Garden Makers have used the recent National Tree Week to plant seeds for a green future.

The national event encourages people to care for their local woodlands by planting new trees and taking part in activities.

The Community Garden Makers received 840 saplings from the Woodland Trust and planted them across Nelson and Colne as part of their biannual giveaway.

Throughout the week, the team worked with volunteers at Alkincoats Park, and Garden Able at Hodge House Allotments; the Waterside Neighbourhood Action Group at Millennium Green; groups at Hodge House Community Centre and pupils from Park High, Holy Saviour Primary School, Barrowford Primary and Primet Primary.

Why not plant a tree this winter in your own garden or with your school or community group?

You can register to receive free trees from the Woodland Trust at

Applications for March delivery close at 4pm on January 6, 2017.

We welcome relevant, respectful comments.
