The Orchard Site
#Socially Connected # Climate Conscious
Why this Site for our Orchard?
In searching for a suitable site the key attributes were
close to the Centre of the village
not being used for something else of value to the community
near amenities such as toilets, parking, storage for tools, and potential for all abilities access.
Available to negotiate a long term lease or purchase
Over the years the area to the south of the Car Park has been used to site the Community Shed and then the Volunteer Fire Brigade base. It seemed logical to investigate the area to the east of these developments and south of the Play Park development which has already included a few fruit trees showing that these were valued and 'fruitful'.
