The orchard was planted in March 2021 – mainly apples, pears, cherry, apricot, blackcurrant, hazel, blackthorn for sloes & crab apples on a small strip of the Village Hall Field; underneath will be space for wild flowers so the mowing regime will change to accommodate that. There will also be space for bench seats so that people can enjoy the view (apparently the Churchyard has run out of space for commemorative seats so this could provide an alternative location).
In total around 60 new tress and about 40 shrubs, which will play their part in reducing CO2 in the atmosphere.
There is still allow ample space for the big, occasional events that take place there.
