In the spirit of Christmas and our ethos of "reduce, reuse, recyle" we can reliably inform you that all three charity shops in Port Erin are absolutely bursting with pre-owned Christmas bargains.

Can any of our followers confirm the same for the shops in other towns in the island? It would be great to support them, and the charities they serve, as much as we can this Christmas!

Hospice warehouse shop near B&Q has decorations, and lots of toys. Tons of kids books too, for kids of all ages. And all extremely well priced!! They also have their usual furniture. And upstairs they have household items like dinner sets etc, if you’ve got extra seats at the table over Christmas.

The Hospice Shop on Main Road in Onchan πŸ‘

Manx Blind Welfare Shop in Strand Street, Douglas had loads of Christmas jumpers.

Just south of Ramsey, Ballagilley Farm asked us to plant ca 500 trees. Our site surveyor said that the plantings difficulty will be easy to intermediate. πŸ‘Œ

πŸš—πŸšŒπŸš²
Parking should be possible at the farm itself, google maps https://goo.gl/maps/vuSZaKV4UnHLckY7A and governments maps on http://gov.im/maps 

Directions: Coming from Douglas go through the Glen Mona past the Dhoon School and Corony.  Travel approx 1 mile, crossroads after the right hand bend turn left, just at the bus shelter.  Go up road which heads towards the A18 mountain road (Gooseneck) it’s the old farm on the right with a large waterwheel attached to the barn.

If you would like a lift, let us know where you are coming from and we might be able to organise something.πŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈπŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ

πŸ‘βš’
The plantings tend to last for two to three hours and we share coffee and tea afterwards. All you need to bring is dirt proof and warm clothing, including shoes. If you can bring gardening gloves and coffee/tea along it would be a help but we can also provide them for you.Please wear warm clothes and Wellington boots or stout shoes would be sensible.

Dont worry if you have never planted a tree in your life - we will show you how to do it!Image attachment

will this be this weekend?

Is anyone able to offer a lift from the south? Ctown area. Many thanks.

Think you're planting at cabyl ushty, my house is Ballagilley farm house and although you're very welcome to plant trees at mine Brian and Stephanie next door might be a little miffed Cheers

This Saturday 100 beeches were planted by a lovely group of people around family Munsch. They had collected 300gbp at a christening and wanted to plant the trees as a group event themselves. Put into soil with enthusiasm and determination, the trees will live a long time and offset ca. a quarter of one persons lifetime emissions - an excellent start for the recently christened young Oswald!πŸ’šπŸ’š

Three Isle of Man Woodland Trust volunteers gave guidance but after the first 30 minutes our presence was barely needed.

Instead of buying a Christmas tree I joined Isle of Man Woodland Trust.

Finally - now that we're in December, we can talk about Christmas!

If you'd like to buy something a little bit different for the eco-warrior in your life then look no further. A donation to the Isle of Man Woodland Trust enables us to plant more trees in our beautiful island and comes with a free, customised digital certificate which you can print, email or share to social media. Each tree costs us Β£3, so please make your donation divisible by 3!

Also - as an extra this year, you can make a donation rather than write, post and deliver cards. You can even tag your friends and family in your certificate when you post it to your Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Groovy, hey?

Email iomwtmembers@gmail.com to make arrangements. We accept donations by PayPal, bank transfer and cheque.

Jolly Christmassings! ~IOMWT

Free Rowans for peoples gardens in Douglas. Lovely concept, we hope that it will be widely taken up. 
πŸ’ͺ
If you are unsure how to plant a tree, the following video will give you an idea how to plant a sapling. Saplings are smaller than the wips Douglas Borough Council gives away so you dont have to worry about rabbit guard and cane.

Hope there not part of Mr Q's 80,000 pledge πŸ€”

We will return to Glen Helen, where we have already been four times this season and planted about 850 of the 1000 saplings goal. A good final push would be a proper bow to our efforts there. The planting is easy to intermediate, sturdy shoes to stand mud are recommended. The fantastic land managers were so kind to spoil us with sandwiches, pastries and cakes last time.
β˜•οΈπŸ₯ƒ
The plantings tend to last for two to three hours and we share coffee and tea afterwards. All you need to bring is dirt proof and warm clothing, including sturdy shoes. If you can bring gardening gloves and a mug for coffee/tea along it would be a help but we can also provide them for you.

The land is by Eairy Moar Farm, just west of the beautiful Glen Helen. Please try to be on time or only a little bit late as the land managers are so kind to transport people up and down the hill with 4x4s.
Parking is best at Glen Helen main car park. Glen Helen car park can be found on google maps https://goo.gl/maps/zjxGX3xhMH4sBXuV9 and governments maps on http://gov.im/maps/Image attachment

If someone can give a lift from Castletown, please let us know

Howdy, you could set up a Facebook event. That way, people get reminds, it can sync to their phone calendar and all kinds of nifty things πŸ˜†πŸ‘πŸΌ

We at the Isle of Man Woodland Trust honour those who we feel have made an outstanding contribution to the restoration of Manx native woodland. 

Foremost among these are Stewart and Barbara Clague, owners of Stewart Clague Services. Over many years they have dedicated an enormous amount of time and effort to create the beautiful nature reserve at Ballanette. What is more, they have very generously opened it to the general public, and indeed, it forms the final stretch of the Raad ny Foillan, the islands coastal footpath.

As a symbol of our appreciation we have presented them an honorary life membership of the Trust along with a yew tree. Yew trees are traditionally found growing in churchyards and often date back over a thousand years. Stewart and Barbaras yew has been planted in the grounds of Lonan Old Church, one of the islands most ancient and beautiful parish churches. May the beauty of Ballanette delight the Manx and visitors to the island for a thousand years to come.

Thank you Stewart and Barbara

An orphanage for trees?  What a wonderful idea!  ~IOMWT

An orphanage for trees? What a wonderful idea! ~IOMWTThis week is National Tree Week, the UK's largest annual tree celebration marking the start of the winter tree planting season.

Moorhouse Farm has been planting trees for over 50 years and as part of our latest initiative we have launched our TREE ORPHANAGE.

Do you have any unwanted saplings that have sprung up in the wrong place and would rather they reach their full potential than end up on the compost heap?

Pop them to the farm and we can plant them in one of our designated set aside areas.

Thank you. 😁
