We can celebrate a fantastic donation of £500 from the Oxfordshire County Council as part of their Big Society Fund. The money will go towards planting trees in the community orchard and planting native fruit trees amongst hedgerows within the village.
This money comes at a perfect time as from now until September we will be raising funds to establish the orchard. We plan to prepare the land in September and launch the project at Apple Day in October. Planting will start in November.
