Rescheduled: Join us on a (rescheduled!) January day for the first step of our 30 year Ramsey Forest project

**Please note: This is the new date for the launch which was due to take place on 1 Jan - let's hope the weather's better this time!**

Commemorate the launch of the project by planting the first trees of this amazing 30 year long project.

It all starts at 1pm on Saturday 18 January January at Mooragh Park, meet by the car park next to the playground. Planting completed, we all meet back at Northern Lights cafe in Ramsey at 3pm for a social gathering.

All trees will be provided and stewards will be on hand to guide you to where and what you need to do, all you need to bring is your own spade. Please wear appropriate footwear and clothing for outdoor events. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

The Ramsey Forest project is a 30 year long project with the aim to increase woodland cover from 20 per cent to 30 per cent by expanding and linking the glens, plantations and woodlands between Ramsey and Sulby.

Planting trees is only a small part; it’s also about encouraging economic regeneration and forging strong relationships with neighbours and the community.

So come and plant a tree, or many trees, at a spot where you can return to time after time to witness their progress. Join us, chat to other volunteers and learn how you can get involved in the different aspects of Ramsey Forest, whether it’s contributing towards its biodiversity, recreation and/or business strategies.

In the event of bad weather the project will be rescheduled at a later date.
