Orchard Project : Site Cleanup Starts

On Saturday 26 January we made a big step forward in our plans to create the Community Orchard.
Over 40 people came along to help clear up the derelict land on the edge of the Ferry Lane playing field. Over half of them were children, including twelve Bishopthorpe Scouts. There was so much enthusiasm for the task that all the brambles were cleared too, which means we don’t need to pay for a tractor and flail.
Fantastic effort!
