APPLE DAY at the orchard

in the allotments on Bowling Pk Drive

The event runs from 12-4pm.

If you wish to volunteer please let us know in advance. There will only be an early pick up at Culture Fusion (c. 8.30am), so it would help us greatly if you could make your own way there if you don’t fancy the early start. Volunteer tasks include putting marquees up (and down), helping with the juicing, teas and coffees and selling chutneys, apples etc.

Bowling Park Community Orchard - to be updated

Friday 28th September, 2018

We will probably be at the orchard (in the allotments on Bowling Pk Drive) , but may change at short notice. We will email and update the website.

[At this stage we would like to keep the schedule for September flexible. We need to get the shed built by the end of the month. Some of this will be in the workshop, but when we come to the actual construction it will need to be consecutive days, in dry weather. We will email specific work days as we progress. If you only receive the programme by post and want to be kept informed then please ring the office to let us know].
