Community Orchard Hay Making 01

The annual haymaking work party will take place on Saturday 18th August from 10.00am to approx 2.00pm at Townsend Community Orchard, just off Townsend Green.

If you'd like to get a bit of exercise and meet the existing team of volunteers then do pop along. You're welcome to come for as long as you wish — every bit of help is gratefully accepted.

The main jobs are going to be to cut all the meadow grass, rake it up and barrow it to the compost corner. Tools-wise it's best you bring a pitchfork or a light garden fork, and/or a rake, and some garden gloves.

Tea/coffee and refreshments will be provided. Bring a packed lunch if you are staying for the whole session.

For more information, please contact Diccon Proctor 07799 686080.
