Work Party Reminder

There’s a work party at the Orchard on Monday 6th June 2022 (10.00am until 2.00pm).

Hot/cold drinks will be supplied but please bring along a packed lunch. Please also wear suitable clothing and bring work gloves if possible.

It’s now the busy growing season, so there’ll be lots of cutting back to do! Any help whatsoever will be much appreciated.

We now have a permanent toilet on site! Hopefully this will be of benefit to all our workers and visitors.

Work Party

You’re invited to our work party tomorrow (9th May 2022) at the Orchard (10.00am until 2.00pm). Drinks and tools will be provided but you will need to bring your own packed lunch.

We will also be launching our new on-site composting toilet. This is a much needed facility for our helpers and visitors.

Hope you can join us!

Orchard maintenance

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!

2nd March 2020

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.
