Your trees should be delivered today. Many thanks to Dave, Jenny and Chistine for helping with deliveries.

As the trees are bare rooted please get the trees planted as soon as you can. If you can’t put them in their permanent position then you can just pop them in any soil or a pot short term

The Trees are ready!

The trees are ready for moving. We will be collecting them at the end of the week and given we are still in lockdown are going to deliver them rather than having a central collection point. They should be delivered Friday or Saturday and need to be planted as soon as possible. Short term they could just be put in any spare bit of earth or a pot.

We have volunteers for most deliveries but could do with some help on Albion Lock. Cllr Nixon is confident of finding the properties on Morgan Road – could anyone help to do deliveries of the trees to another 6 properties on Albion Lock? I also do not have an address for an order from Mohamed – please get in touch ( or 07854594726)


Due to Autumn coming later than usual this year the trees have been delayed for 3-4 weeks. Once we have a date for the arrival of the trees and we know the current guidelines then we will update you on the process for collection. If guidelines do not allow us to have a collection point then we will look at delivery.

We have also been made aware that some emails have not been getting through to I will confirm to everyone that I have received their request in the next couple of days. So, if you do not hear from me then please try to contact me again. We will be able to include extra orders.

VE75 Day in Moston

You may or may not know but we have a Swing Band based in Moston, The Debonaires, and last year the band made a recording of The Lambeth Walk and a number of Moston residents helped with the ‘oy

The Lambeth Walk was played extensively on VE day and Alan and Anne Holder have supplied the attached link of the recording which can be played and sung along to on Friday (also at any other time).

Many of us have decorated  the fronts of out houses with flags and bunting, it would be great if we are able to sit in our front gardens and chat as safe as possible with neighbours to celebrate this day.

So here is the timetable for our virtual Moston VE75 Day party.

At 3.0pm Alan will play on the band P.A. system the air raid siren as the last ”All Clear” and we can all do the nation’s toast to the heroes of World War 2.

” To those who gave so much, we thank you ”

At 3.05 we can play and singalong to the Debonaires recording of The Lambeth Walk.

After this Alan will play VE day music on the band PA system, it will depend on the wind direction who and how many of us hear it, hopefully many of us.

Lets make the best of this celebration in spite of Covid-19.
