Fancy some fresh air and exercise while benefitting the local community?

Then why not come along on Saturday 27th August to help keep Townsend Community Orchard looking great as well as promoting the spread of wildflowers for next year?

We will be gathering the meadow grass at the orchard and building a haystack or two. There will be a lot of grass to collect and so lots and lots of helpers are needed.

Please come to the Orchard from about 10.00am. Bring a fork, a rake and maybe a wheelbarrow... and a big sense of fun!

This could take quite a few hours, so anyone who comes to help will get a complimentary glass of cider or apple juice and maybe even a piece of cake!

This is a very big task with lots of people needed to help get the job done. If you can spare some time this will be much appreciated.

If you can join us, please email Greg Smith at: smith.poole@btinternet.com
