Started in 2016, with mostly Welsh heritage trees provided by Tai Calon, the orchard has survived its first winter with only one or two losses. Could we have deer in the woodland?
Some of the tree guards have had chunks bitten out of them! Jayne Hunt came last Saturday 11th March and gave them their first light pruning, and later we hope to do some wild flower planting along the margins.
Simon from BTIC ( business in the community ) visited the woodlands on 14th March to look at possible projects for their volunteering day in May, proposed brush thinning in copse opposite orchard, removal of obsolete wire fencing and mending of various stonework about the site, possible clean up of top pond and putting a bench there were subjects discussed.
We have lots of other things going on as well. Please message or email Susy if you have availability and are interested in volunteering with us at email@example.com.
