Hi Everyone,

Happy new year to you all.

We plan to have a bit of a pruning session at Coneygree on 18th January.

Hopefully the weather has been cold enough to keep the trees dormant.

Please come along, and bring a good pair of secateurs if you have them.

I'm sure there will be some general tidying to be carried out also.

Hope to see you there to burn off some Xmas calories.

Saturday Jan 18th 10am

Kevin.

A perfect day for the first pear-picking of the season today. Some of the fruit was reluctant to come down so Kevin and John climbed into the tree to give the branches a good shake, with the the rest of us below dodging the falling pears. We filled seven baskets which will go for juicing next weekend. This is a Community project so anyone is welcome to help with the variety of tasks involved in getting the fruit from the tree to the market place. ... See MoreSee Less

A BIG thank you to Knights Brown - the contractors who are doing the work on the roundabout. They have offered to do free any small works required for community projects!

As you have probably seen, the Orchard Group have been working at laying new paths in the Coneygree orchard. Much of the path edges and larger stone has been laid, but the top 'dust' surface and compacting/finishing was still to do - a job that would have taken the volunteers many weekends to complete. Yesterday, a team of men from Knights Brown worked hard all day ( in the rain!) and did all of this finishing - paths now complete.

Once again, THANK YOU to the Knights Brown team!

Hi, Before we know it, it will be spring... honest.
This means we need to carry out some pruning of the Apple and Pear trees whilst in their dormant state.

If your willing and able please meet at Coneygree orchard this Saturday at 10pm
Please bring a good pair of bypass secateurs if you have some.

Warm Regards,
Kevin.

Come along to the the OHMG Community Centre grounds on Saturday to join in our 8th great apple pressing jamboree. (well OK, last year was not so great as storm Brian blew us all away - but the weather forecast now is looking good for this weekend!). Everybody welcome.
Bring apples or pears from your garden and see them transformed into golden juice - or lend a hand with the collecting and pressing - or just come and watch - lots going on! Take some juice home.
(NB bottled juice will also be on sale the next day at Hazel Cottage for the YARD TRAIL - all proceeds to the Eastington Community Orchard Group, to help plant and cherish more trees and green spaces)
