The South East East Conservation Volunteers will be working at St. Laurence Orchard on Sunday 21st November from 10.00am onwards. For further information, please visit South East Essex Conservation Volunteers.
We have held a couple of work sessions at the Orchard during September. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 precautions, we have been unable to open up the work parties to all.
On Monday, we harvested a lot of the remaining apples, removed litter and ensured paths were kept clear. Unfortunately, we will be unable to hold our annual Apple Day event in October but we can enjoy the apples nonetheless. Our Bramley apples are perfect for making a tasty apple strudel!
Excellent work party today! Despite a damp start, ten of us turned up to carry out essential tasks at the Orchard. We picked up litter, removed invasive brambles, cut back overhanging branches, cleared paths and pruned fruit trees.
We’re now looking forward to our next work party in May.
