Willingham Action Group Tree Project Community Orchard – the last tree goes in

Bruce and Irene Robjent were the sponsors of the last fruit tree to be planted on the orchard grid. Their tree, St Edmunds Russet apple, is dedicated to French friends of the Fen Edge Twinning Association in Avrille. We look forward to welcoming them to the orchard on their next exchange visit.

120 fruit and nut trees, including an edible Rowan with larger berries, have now been planted with 114 on the orchard grid, which will soon be labelled with the dedications of their sponsors. All the trees have either been sponsored or donated in kind which is a great achievement. We hope visitors enjoy the orchard in the spring when in blossom.
