Wildflower & Fruit Bush Planting 03

A large group of willing volunteers joined forces at the community orchard on Townsend Green on a warm and sunny Good Friday morning, to continue the work of turning a green field space into a fruit orchard for the village.

Much tree planting has already taken place in recent months. This day was all about planting wildflowers & fruit bushes.

An added attraction on this occasion was an Easter Egg Hunt for the youngsters, including a craft session during which the children had an opportunity to create a basket in which to collect their chocolate goodies!

Organised by Greg Smith and his fellow members of the orchard development team, the day was productive and satisfying from an adult perspective, and deliciously worthwhile from a child's!
