THIS SATURDAY: Orchard volunteering session - Saturday 11 February, 10.30am-12.30pm

The community orchard planted in Ladywell Fields in 2011 is thriving but, like any orchard, it needs care and attention if the trees are to grow strongly and avoid disease.  

This is one of our twice-yearly volunteer sessions at which you can learn and help prune the trees, inspect and repair the guards, and mulch the trees with woodchip to keep weeds down.  

If you do come and you have any of the following please bring them nave any of the following please bring them - thick gloves, sharp secateurs and garden buckets.  

Also, at the risk of stating the obvious, come in work clothes with robust shoes!

Pruning requires dry weather so if it is raining we shall need to reschedule.
