York Rotary Family Tree Planting Partnership "TLC" days on site November/December 2020


As part of  York Environment Week 2020 we are encouraging parents to give  two hours of their time for some hands-on maintenance of the trees planted last year to celebrate their baby's birth.

We are pleased to report that the trees planted last year to commemorate these births have flourished.

They would of course all benefit from some tender , loving , care and I hope you will consider getting involved.

We are seeking  volunteers to join us on site for 2 hours from

10.30am to 12.30pm on any day convenient to you between Saturday 28th November to Saturday 5th December.

(Please note: adults only, for a working party; up to two per family)


The task is to clear the grass and weeds from round the trees and give the saplings the chance to grow stronger.

No tools needed but gloves definitely desirable.  A Rotarian will welcome you and give  advice and guidance. The site is on Haxby Road, just North of  the York St John University Sports Park Grounds (East side of the road; some car parking available at the Sports Park Grounds).      Download map

We hope you will consider participating - your two hours would make a big  difference

Covid19 regulations limit the number in a working group to six

Some days will be more popular than others so we hope you will rank your preferences.

(if Government COVID regulations should change, all those registered will be informed)

Please register using the form... >>>

Family visits with children will not be possible when the working groups are on site.   You are however free to visit the site at any other time  via the public access points on Haxby Road or Huntington Road.

We are hoping to arrange an anniversary  community picnic on Sunday 6th June 2021
