GRANT of £ 1,500 for CHURCHEND ORCHARD
We have won a grant from Glos County Council (Communities Access Grant).
This will go a long way to paying for the trees needed to complete Churchend Orchard. The money includes costs of tree-guards to keep off the deer, badgers and rabbits who tend to take a fancy to sweet young growth and indeed fruits too near the ground.
A measure of our success will be to see some tidy gates, a path and some seating for all villagers to use, hopefully by early next summer.
Look out for Workparties to prepare the ground for planting (through the summer) and for the first trees to be dug in during this late autumn.
One or more Apple Days will be held in late October in conjunction with the school and the new youth Group - Click here see our new Apple Day page.
We already have 50 people ‘signed up’ to donate/help/generally support - don’t be left out!
