Over 70 people turned out on Saturday to help plant the first trees for the new Townsend Community Orchard. It was wonderful community atmosphere with young and old taking part — and wonderful to see so many children involved.
As well as digging holes to plant the new trees, there was apple pressing and a delicious cake sale!
A huge thank you to everyone who took part.
Twenty-two trees have now been planted. The second stage of planting is scheduled for November — the precise date has yet to be confirmed but will be well publicised here on Haddenham.net, as well as the Community Orchard website.
If anyone is interested in sponsoring a tree or getting involved in the project, please visit the website or the dedicated Facebook page where you will also see lots more photos from the first planting session.
