Orchard Meeting and Updated Actions

Orchard Meeting and Updated Actions and Achievements from 12th May

Sally, Paul and I met today and walked round the orchard. It’s looking fantastic, so a huge thank you to all the stakers and pruners, the weeders and litter pickers, the bench treaters and feeder hangers!!

Huge thank you too to Wiltshire Wood Recycling who donated above their remit for the benches, bird boxes and bug boxes. Also huge thanks to Paul Weaver for donating the stakes, to Richard and Adam for donating the mulch and to Ruth Hopkinson for donating the bird feeders. And to everyone else who has given time, energy and commitment to our project.

Thanks also to our partners in the school and the Eco Buddies and their parents who have done a huge amount in helping bring the orchard to bloom! Thanks to Sophie and Ruth for getting the contractors in line!!

The notes are attached and see below for dates and future events.

Very best wishes and thanks,

Nikki
