The Friends are creating a Community Orchard
Planting fruit trees in the Community orchard.
Last year we planted over twenty fruit trees around the site and made a more recognisable orchard on the hill near the lake, where the old playground stood. The trees grew well despite the very dry summer. We wonder how they will cope with the very wet winter?
We have been given ten more mixed apple, pear, plum and cherry trees by Red Rose Forest and we planted these just before Christmas 2013.
We are hoping that in time the trees will fruit and this fruit will be available to the Community.
We hope that the trees will be respected and allowed to grow.
