Community Orchard Easter Fun Day

Hey !  What Great Fun we all had at the Orchard on 04 April !

It was our Community Orchard Spring Event Day.
Despite the weather being a bit grey and slightly nippy,
It didn’t seem to matter at all !

Keith had organised absolutely everything !
We had a gazebo, chairs and tables; tea and coffee and lots of yummy treats.
Apples, juice, donuts, and gorgeous home made cakes, cookies, and brownies! Wow !
Some were made by Rebecca and others made by Helen ‘Pattercake’

Keith had also organised a nature hunt for the children as well as making mini Bug Hotels.

Tricia was digging out the bramble roots in order to plant some lovely wild garden seeds.
She had a great team of children helping do some fun digging too !  

There was lots of chatter chatter chatter as everyone was catching-up and learning about all sorts of different interest groups in our community!  'Make Do and Mend’ folks were there with all sorts of wonderful things they had made.   Harvey and his wife were there too.  He is starting up the Abbey ‘Old’ Boy’s Club.  Nicky and Simon were there keeping everything going as well !  I brought the new Abbey Bulb plan and was telling folks about the Abbey Bulbs project and taking photos too :)

Some exploring down in the woody end of the Orchard

And the bulbs that we all planted in February were popping up on the day too!  
Here are some of them planted around the Lovely Bug Hotel :)

What a Great ol time it was for All of us !     
Many thanks Keith !
Cheers All !
