Orchard Events Diary

(See Project Sessions on Tasks & Projects page for more details of planned tasks on orchard work days)

Scheduled orchard work days have been suspended but will return on the first Sunday of each month once the coronavirus issue eases, current restrictions are reomved and it is safe to gather. You can still visit and work in the orchard alone or with a household member - working a safe distance apart of course - as part of your daily exercise as long as you keep within current government guidelines to ensure you and others are not at risk of infection.

Other Events

All cancelled/postponed. Events will be listed again in this section as and when they are rescheduled once government lockdown instructions change and it's safe to gather in groups.
