Well done to everyone who helped out or came along, and thanks to the library for always making us so welcome.
The talk on bees by Helen Rimmer from FoE was excellent and we have established a good contact. Visitors to the TTC stall were interested , kids were engaged, and , sorry for the pun, but there was a real buzz in the library
Does anyone know where we can get hold of a decently priced, healthy potted olive tree, for us to use in the library for ideas/ wishes/ questions/ inspiration and consultation ?
They and we are ready to go, but need a tree !
May TTC meeting followed by a fairly well attended (by recent standards) Green Drinks took place on May 3rd. Minutes can be found in Meetings section of website .
We have decided to give Beatherder a miss this year but attend the more homegrown micro festival Cloudspotting if there are enough people willing to help. Please express your interest if you are able to help out weekend 26-28 July (check out the website www.cloudspotting.org.uk)
For the childrens’ workshops we will be conducting some recycling/growing based activities
We need the following materials :
colourful plastic bags (clean) , straws( used ,washed ) yoghurt pots; some cardboard (cereal box thickness) cut into long leaf shapes if possible (about 15 cm by 7cm)
We also need to know whether people can help out at the Clitheroe food festival on August 10th as we have decided to share the cost of stall space with the Fair Trade group.
And finally we need you to start collecting/ saving ends of tins of paint for a graffiti project that we have lined up- emulsion okay but gloss better- it’s an outdoor project
I have discovered that when you put an event in the calendar, the date and time all go in the listing, but this info does not get sent with the email alert. So for everyone who got the email alert about the meeting without the date – it’s May 3rd:)
On Saturday 27th April Clitheroe Library is hosting what has become an annual event: a seed swap, where gardeners/transitioners/ allotmenteers come together and offer information to the general public activities and seeds for swapping at the library.
We are trying to get a rota of helpers for the day, so if you can offer an hour or two ( between 10am and 4pm) to be at our stand inside the library and chat to people please email me:
If you can’t help out come along anyway
and if you have any seeds to swap bring them along on the day
Please come along to the TTC AGM , to be held at the Oasis Rooms , St James Church from 2.30 pm. We will be welcoming Kerry Gormley, currently the manager of One Planet , the community owned ethical, local, sustainable shop in Accrington, who we hope will share some of her experience and insights with us.
If you can, please bring along something to eat/drink/share for afternoon tea- Jacobs join style. If you can’t bring anything, just bring yourself.
It would be lovely to see you.
This is such a great idea- with the creativity , goodwill and wealth that is around the Ribble Valley what’s to stop a similar set up here?

I don’t normally have positive things to say about our borough council, but credit where credit’s due, I think this is a really positive step by the council:
Well done RVBC!
