Orchard Planting - 2nd Phase
Apple Orchard 02

Spring forward with the Community Orchard on Good Friday

Why not join in the next phase of planting at the Community Orchard?

On Friday, 25th March, Good Friday at 11.00am, please come and help plant wildflowers and fruit bushes in the Townsend Orchard (off Townsend Green).

This is a great way to kick off the Easter weekend and help create a lasting legacy for the village.

All you need is a trowel and maybe gardening gloves. We will supply the wildflowers and fruit bushes and any advice, so don't worry if you have no experience. Little ones also very welcome!

If you have snow drops in your garden now is a good time to divide the clumps and if you can spare some bulbs please bring them to the orchard.

In future years the fruit from the orchard will be free to anyone from our community. The peaceful captivating nature of the orchard will be enhanced by wildflower areas and fruit bushes and will bring pleasure for us all for years to come.

For more information, see the orchard website,
