Maintenance work party at Sawmill Orchard

Many hands made light work of weeding and general clearing at the Sawmill Orchard prior to the AGM on 26th May.

A dozen or so members gathered at the Sawmill Orchard in Hutton in the Forest on Sunday 26th May prior to the AGM at Hutton tearoom. The weeds had grown spectacularly and the group worked diligently to clear the growth around the trees. The weed mats along the cordons have done a good job restricting the weed growth but a lot of hand weeding was done between the trees, while the strimmers tackled the wider spaces. There is a lot of comfrey growing on the site which will provide good mulch later in the year.
