Orchard Watering

When the weather is dry in the Spring, Summer and Autumn the trees at the Community Orchard of the Allotment field require watering.

This takes place every Thursday evening at 5.30 pm

All help is welcome, just bring a can or bucket and maybe a bottle of wine or other drink to socially toast the trees afterwards.

Watering is complete for 2017. Dates for 2018 will appear below when known.

These dates are weather dependent and will not be required if we have plenty of rain. If you have any doubts please check with Jasmine on 01728 668059


Progress due to watering can be seen in the first two pictures below. The Parish Council and especially Jasmine would like to thank all those who helped over the past months. If all goes well there should be fruit for the community next year.
