If you have land in the Colne Valley and want some trees, talk to us.

Last winter we planted over 5000 trees!

Woman power

Tanya, Dianne and Harriet. Resting.


Once again we were gender balanced, this could bring a whole new vibe to the group if it continues. We were: Tanya, Dianne, Jess, Harriet, Dave, Philip, Stephen and myself.

We finished cutting and clearing at Throstle, it was a long and tough morning but we got it done.

Cake was cherry rock buns.

He-man: and the Masters of the Universe

Well it was either He-man, or So Macho.


The fun never stops. We were back at Throstle wrestling with the Blackthorn roots. Myself, Dave, Tanya and Hap. Cake was Co-Op doughnuts.

I am woman - Chain of fools

Me and Harriet compete for best dressed volunteer.


A first for CVTS, we had gender parity today, in terms of numbers. We were: Dianne, Jess, Harriet and Tanya, plus Dave, myself, Steve and Lee.

The location of this historic event was Throstle. Where we were removing Blackthorn roots and cutting back Willow. Got a good bit done but yet still more to do.

After deciding on a woman theme there were a lot of tune suggestions. So a 70's feminist anthem, and a tune for Aretha.

Look what you made me do.

It didn't see Dave coming.

A heroic/foolhardy one man effort from Dave this week to grub out Blackthorn roots at Throstle. Probably better to share the pain with some equally misguided friends?

Back in black(thorn)

Hap looking momentarily disconsulate. John and Adrian not quite at that point, yet.


This week we were back at Throstle Green. We need to cut back some undergrowth, hopefully for the final time. And we started on the worst bit, a thicket of blackthorn. It was not easy or pleasant, in fact it was hellish, but we got it done. We were: myself, Hap, John, Adrian, Stephen, Steve and Dave. Geoff decided to stay a the nursery. Cake was an excellent flapjack with fresh raspberry filling.
