A Community Orchard for Hedon.
A new charity has been set up to provide a community orchard for Hedon and eventually other places too. The new trustees of the charity Holderness Community Orchards will be working with local communities to plant fruit trees. The first project will be to work with Hedon Town Council to plant 28 trees at Elsie Gate field on Ivy Lane in Hedon. Local people would benefit through the tree planting scheme and an accompanying wildflower meadow. When in season, people would be able to come and freely pick the different varieties of ripe fruit.
The new charity is holding a launching public meeting on Thursday 21 November 2019 at 6.30pm at the Haven Arms. The founders and trustees of the new charity, Neal Everingham, Kelvin Hurd and David Langcaster invite anyone interested in the project to attend:
“Come along if you’re interested in helping us develop this project. We will be introducing ourselves as the trustees, explaining the project, signing up volunteers and taking expressions of interest for anyone who wants to be part of our committee. We look forward to seeing you there!”
