Welcome to our new website! 

After several years of 'deliberation', we have taken the plunge and moved onto to updated software. 

We know that we still have work to do to get it all in order and will be working to make corrections and alterations over the coming weeks and months. Please do contact us if you find something is not working correctly. 

Thanks for your patience and continued support. 

 

Apple Day 2018

Submitted by julia on Tue, 4th Sep 2018, 5:26pm

Apple Day is on Sunday 14th October, from 12 noon until 4pm.

There will be the usual array of activities; help out with making fresh juice, enjoy a cake and a falapple wrap, buy some apples form the orchard and some chutney and jams. There will be trees on sale and horticultural advice. If you have an unidentified apple then bring it along with a twig and some leaves to see if Anne can put a name to it. Orchard games and activities throughout the afternoon. 

This is a free event but donationand cake sales are essential to go towards the the cost of the event.

If you hope to volunteer please get in touch in advance, thank you. 

And some of the apples will ripe and be finished before Apple Day, so if you are interested in fresh, local fruit now then get in touch.

Blossom Day Friday 12th May

Submitted by julia on Tue, 9th May 2017, 4:29pm

You are invited to come along to the orchard between 11am and 3pm this Friday to enjoy the blossom and have a look around. 

There will be the normal Friday Volunteer Group activities, or you can just pop in for a cup of tea and a chat. 

The blossom started over a month earlier this year than the previous two, but fingers crossed it will still be looking good this week. Let's just hope it hasn't been too cold for the pollinating bees.
