Shaftesbury Tree Festival - 23rd - 26th September 2021
In September 2021 the Shaftesbury Tree Festival took place.
The event was part of the Climate Coalition’s Great Big Green Week. The Climate Coalition is over 140 organisations who are working together to ‘show our love for all things we want to protect from Climate Change.’ It is over 22 million strong and includes the National Trust, RSPB, Woodland Trust, WWF, The Women’s Institute and many more including Planet Shaftesbury.
Shaftesbury Tree Festival was a grassroots festival for each of us to celebrate the beautiful trees we have and the new trees and hedgerows that are being added through the Town Tree Plan 2020-25.

Into the woods - Flash Fiction
Here are the wonderful submissions for 'Into the Woods', tree inspired flash fiction for the online Tree Festival. Flash fiction is - as you might have guessed - very short, highly crafted, narrative writing, just right for these Twittering times.
