Well done to everyone who worked at the Orchard today.
Despite the warm weather, paths were cleared and nettles/brambles cut back. Encroaching vegetation around our banner and fence was also removed.
There were a number of butterflies (e.g. Peacock) that we enjoyed spotting. We were also delighted to see that there is plenty of fruit forming on the trees. We look forward to harvesting later in the season.
Well done to everyone who volunteered at yesterday’s work party.
